    Micheal why not giving some of those cards to the nouveau developers now . Of course if they are interested to hack/test on some of these or if they can't find anymore some of these, etc... .

    Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT 256MB (500/400MHz)
    ASUS NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 256MB (540/702MHz)
    ECS NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT 256MB (600/700MHz)
    Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT 1024MB (550/400MHz)
    XFX NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB (500/900MHz)
    MSI NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT 512MB (660/950MHz)

    They are dropping the legacy support very early now.
    I have a Geforce 4 and it was supported till uUbuntu 12.04 (for over 10 years).

    Default Article timeline is wrong

    Support is through the end of 2019, not 2016.

    He confused the EOL date for Windows with the Linux one. Here's the Windows one: http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3473
