      Nouveau is a Linux thing. It's likely that the BSDs will need NV around for some time as a fallback for anyone not using proprietary Nvidia.

          Trident, Tseng, ... Chips (this chipsnchips stuff?) OMG, my childhood is coming back. Didn't read a lot of these names for a long on my screen. God, these days with a 14" CRT attached to a 386 or something.
          But great to see that the stuff still works.
          It's also refreshing to see airlied suddenly emerging and slapping a lot of new/updated driver stuff around your ears.
