    Could I ask you to include Shipping versions of the binaries and update README so people run them by default? Development...

    That assert has been fixed in UE 4.2 and master (it could happen on GL3 NVidia hardware as well), but generally GL4 NVidia hardware and binary drivers are the only setup known to handle everything...

    We don't open upfront anymore and instead let them fail later. This is mostly needed for editor (and uncooked games), packaged game can start Ok without that. In the above demo, just pass "-pak" to...

    That sounds like it's against the GPL, at least as long as user-space binaries are concerned. You can modify and recompile, but you cannot run. Someone who provided you with a signed user-space...

    Well, maybe for you. Single-threaded performance is still king on the desktop. Even browsers and desktop environments like KDE get smoother with fast CPU, not to mention smoother feeling in games,...

    The question you are not asking is whether they lost or gained money (short term, long term) with this move.

    I think that they certainly gained in the short term (or they wouldn't close it) and...

    I'm one of practical users, but I'll chime in here: you can't easily change the license. Linux is screwed in that regard as changing its license would involve contacting thousands of people and/or...

    Thanks for the reassuring info.

    I always wondered what makes NVidia keep their Linux drivers full-featured and contributed that to post-SGI inertia (with NVidia being SGI continuator in some...

    Maybe. However AMD hardware has had open documentation for years and their OSS drivers are still behind proprietary ones, let alone AMD Windows drivers, so I wouldn't hold my breath.

    This is my problem as well. At the moment I enjoy having the best of both worlds - a nice (and cheap!) alternative OS where all (well, most) my hardware is supported at roughly the same level as it...

    Why can't we all get along. There are reasons to keep some tech private and if you insist on "all or nothing" approach you are more likely to get nothing.

    To reiterate, the problem seems to have an easy solution.

    NVidia needs to create a proxy module that makes GPL symbols available to non-GPL modules. End users are free to install that as long as...

    Because some freedoms are important for me and some others are less so? It's not "all or nothing" for me.
