3D News, GL, DirectX Yesterday, we reported on the statement several kernel developers had signed that urged hardware manufacturers to open up their Linux modules and drivers. "We, the undersigned Linux kernel developers, consider any closed-source Linux kernel module or driver to be harmful and undesirable," the statement read. Nvidia, which delivers probably the most prominent closed-source Linux driver, has reiterated its position concerning this matter.

Member since:

i had bought an nvidia card, but it just died after 3 months for no reason, took it back and they gave me store credit to get another card.

got an ati card with the same price on it, and wow. theres a major speed difference. especially when you turn on antialiasing. much faster rendering.

and hey the drivers and specs are open sourced.

i say screw nvidia, just go with amd/ati, it's better anyways.
