    Just an FYI but I've read that the 306 series on Windows is going to be the last for the GeForce 6 and 7 series cards. I'm not sure if there's a plan to follow suit on Linux.

      Interesting. But not very surprising. I just hope there will be a legacy branch for at least a year or two, as I still have a laptop with a 6600

        They do legacy up to gf2mx, so no fear about Windows losing support. Though it may be that they won't support win8 with the oldest legacy branch, I don't know.

          I don't care about Windows. That goes doubly for Win8

          On Linux, the 96.x.x legacy branch (for Geforce 2-4) is dead: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...6&postcount=90. I also doubt the 173.x.x branch (for Geforce 5) will be receiving any further updates. It'll be interesting to see what they do with 6/7, drop them completely or provide a legacy branch. And if the latter, how long it will last.
