    Phoronix: NVIDIA Releases An OpenGL 3.2 Driver Update

      We can say what we want about NVIDIA, that they do a lot of comercial to sell theyr cards etc...
      But the work for Linux drivers is just awesome.

      I've a 8600MGT and I'm on Karmic beta (always keeping up to date).

      They really do listen to people when there's a problem, and at moment I can only say that it's only brand of gpu cards worth it to use with linux.
      Good perf, good drivers, always keeping up to date.

      (Thank you).

          Well even using a PPA is a blob. blob refers to a binary not the installer type.
