Forgive me if Im wrong but isn't nvidia ignoring the new graphics
technologies(no plan support for kms)?
really I forsee the driver becoming obsolete. They are ignoring the newer
technoloie systems, and the aren't planning to support their own
technologies on linux. on top of this the nouveau driver has been shown to
out preform the nvidia driver on low end cards
