Default What Does NVIDIA Do?

http://www.phoronix.com/vr.php?view=10083

But how does NVIDIA handle their devel/rel cycles for the alternative OS drivers?

Default Re: What Does NVIDIA Do?

Nvidia shares more than 95% of their code between all supported OSes (the version numbers are even similar). The difference lies in the OS-specific interfaces to the kernel, X, GLX and things like that. All other driver and GL code is shared.

New drivers are released on per-feature basis...

I've conducted an interview with a guy from NVIDIA and this was one of the questions. The interview will hopefully be released soon on abclinuxu.cz.
