The point he's trying to make is that it should never take this much time for such a simple thing (that you spent $200 on).

They are working on it. If they know how to fix it, they will.

You're not paying for NVIDIA Linux support.

wrong. He did. He bought a nvidia card because nvidia 'supports' linux. So he paid for it. If nvidia does not deliver it is ok to be pissed off.

"Supports Linux". Where on the box does it say that it supports Linux?

Hardware Support
Technical Support, RMA requests, replacements and warranty issues for your NVIDIA based product are handled by the manufacturer of that product.
I.e. Gainward, Powercolor or whatever.

What has that got to do with anything? NVIDIA doesn't support your card per se, your vendor does that. They will most likely tell you that they do not have Linux support. So..

Vendors like gainward, powercolor, msi, asus... are just responsible for HW part - they get chips from Nvidia and flick them onto their boards. That's it.

Which is why they're responsible for the support. You're not buying GPUs, you are buying a graphics card.

Whatever, the point is, AFAIK, NVIDIA does very well with Linux support IMO. How often do you get in direct contact with developers on a forum?
