[OT] nVidia Linux drivers petition
« on: October 17, 2006, 11:47:45 pm »
Hi,

This is completely offtopic, but I thought there might be people who find this info useful.

Someone created petition addressed to nVidia concerning their Linux device drivers. If you share your thoughts with the ones described on petition's website, feel free to sign it. Details here: http://www.petitiononline.com/nvfoss/petition.html


PS. spread the word if you like. :)

I'd like to file a petition to both nVidia and ATI to **** agree on a **** standard for once, and to **** provide you with non-ambiguous API documentation and non-contradictory guidelines.  :lol:

Anyways good idea.

ATI also has similar problem with their *nix drivers....
