Post official statement on future OS support?

I'm wondering if there is an official statment from nvidia what operation system they will support in the future?

personally I'm running an OpenBSD server for quite some time and loving the ease of use and stability.

because of the lack of a nvidia driver for BSD-systems (what about Darwin btw?) I did not change my desktop OS from XP (games) and Linux to BSD :-(

As far as BSD is concerned, you'll be better off running to the mod community...
I can't speak for them, but I'm pretty sure they are not going to give that OS any support...

just go to the linux drivers section and download the sources and compile your own drivers. I mean FreeBSD use the linux kernel no???...

just get the tar ones since i think freeBSD doesnt support RPMs

I just wanted to say that this could not work for 2 reasons, because BSD-kernels are not linux-like kernels and also the tarballs do not contain source-code, but binary stuff.

now I realized that my comment would be wrong, because in the kernel module of the driver there is a little source code, that can (even has to be) compiled to install it in the kernel.

I definitely have to have a look at this source and try to find out what it does...
