Linux "The result of almost a year of development by NVIDIA, Valve and other game developers, the new GeForce R310 drivers are designed to give GeForce customers the best possible Linux-based PC gaming experience - and showcase the enormous potential of the world's biggest open-source operating system." Like I said: something is happening here. No, not all problems will be solved overnight - but something is happening here, and you have to start somewhere. The fact that several gaming companies and NVIDIA are working together on this is a very clear sign that commitments have been made.

Actually they did make an effort but the kernel devs apparently are too stubborn on the licensing issues so I guess there are huge limits on what the NVIDIA drivers can do. I am referring to the case of the devs refusing to relicense the DMA-BUF APIs - http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTIwNDI

Eh ... it is such a pity. The best GPU will not work properly because of such stubborness. Don't get me wrong, they have full right to refuse to relicense this API, but it is such a bummer!
