    Awwweeeeesome! Congratulations!

    I'm sad that I lack time and even more the money to travel to Toulouse (OMG it's nearly in Spain) so I can't thank these brave devs and initiators personally.
    Michael, please bring some photos from there an tell them they have lots of fans in the community.

      We've been waiting 10x longer than that for useful Open Source Nvidia drivers.

        When you think of nouveau yes. It is needed for older cards now. But nouveau is still not perfect - maybe even more buggy than radeon. Sometimes only vga output works with it. I think i will have to include at least nv binary drivers for the newest chips as fallback because of nouveau problems - when vesa would be used it would work maybe too... The most problematic case for ati are agp cards with newer chips, the problematic case for nouveau are onboard vga and newer cards which are only partly supported. But you should not forget one major diff: it IS possible to unload nouveau (inside screen) and activate nvidia binary, that is NOT possible with fglrx (there you should boot without x and radeon.modeset=0).

                  As much output that can be displayed on a 1920x1200 display at native res.

                        TV with overscan?

                          The output is from my Samsung monitor. TV is no issue as well, zero overscan if you setup the TV right. With samsung there is a setting that is called "Just Scan" which is 1:1 with absolutely no overscan.

                            Well, 1920x1200 just sounds like a really.. odd display ration unless that's a TV with overscan or some other weirdness. Neither an old-fashioned 4:3 nor a wide-screen 16:9.

                                1920x1200 has long been a standard resolution. 16:10 was long a standard ratio for widescreen monitors before they started using the annoying 16:9 panels.
