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.

The old ones sucked baddly. I ended up moving to nVidia GPU for the first time in all the machines I've built because of the Grief.

I'm glad to see AMD turning it around though and would buy an AMD GPU next time if the hardware compares too the 20+ processing channels, Array'd random object skinning and similar functions. We'll see, one of my magazine subscriptions has a simplified technical breakdown of nVidia's next generation GPU and it was the 8800 breakdown that provided the final reason to move away from ATI.
