So what? They're much older cards, and I specifically stated that older variants like the GTS, 256 etc. (and they pre-date Linux support by a long way) weren't supported,

You really have no idea what you're talking about, do you? nVidia's page for the v1.0-1251 driver even says These XFree86 binary drivers provide optimized hardware acceleration of OpenGL applications via a direct-rendering X Server and support the TNT, TNT2, GeForce 256, GeForce2 GTS, GeForce2 MX, GeForce2 Pro, GeForce2 GTS, GeForce 2 Ultra, GeForce2 Go, GeForce3, Quadro, Quadro2 MXR, and Quadro2 Pro chipsets. AGP and flat panel displays are also supported.

And there were even drivers before the v1.0 release, if I recall correctly. So there's no way that the GTS and 256 pre-date nVidia's linux support by a long way. Nice try. Care to pass off another lie?

So 1251 is recent is it? That's over four bloody years ago. Pick a random nVidia driver build out of the air did you? Recent Windows drivers don't support the GTS, 256 or TNT either as I've pointed out. Change in driver architecture? nVidia just drop support as others do, like ATI? Who knows? Shit happens.

Twit.

The cards do pre-date Linux support - those cards were around way before that date. The TNT is about 1998 and the GTS etc. are about 2000 from what I remember. 1998 and 2000 < 2001.

Whichever way you look at it though it's totally irrelevant to the actual discussion - your bullshit about support ending before GeForce FXs. Not bloody true.

Don't try and pick up on stuff I've written in reply to you - you're wrong, OK?

And nVidia had drivers for prior to the release I pointed out on their website, moron. Hell, even before their XFree86 4* releases they supported utah-glx. So there is no f--king way that the GTS pre-dates nVidia's linux support "by a long way".

I have never once, on this forum or any other, said anything about the GeForce FXs, idiot. You're thinking (assuming you're even capable of that) of someone else.
