Yeah, that's what I'm saying. If you insist on taking the less supported path, adjust your expectations. OTOH, I've never been seriously bothered by these artifacts, so the issue seems overblown.

As for ethical reasoning - choose your battles. NVIDIA has been able to provide the best drivers there are for Linux and have good reasons for keeping them closed; I have no problem supporting them for that. I specifically chose my laptop based on the fact that it has an nvidia card.

Well, at least you're upfront about it... that's all I'll add.
