The only REAL things Nvidia can do is
1) Open proper hardware specifications.
2) Hire nouveau devs.
Everything else is a bullshit, to say the least. Now nouveau considered unusable by most users "thanks" to lack of hardware documentation and missing reclocking, leading to really shitty performance. Worst opensource driver of all desktop GPU vendors. Dear Nvidia, you suxx.
Fuck NVIDIA and fuck Michael Larabel.
sure, but much worse than competition. i.e. no nvidia hardware purchases in foreseeable future

So put your money where your mouth is on this. Considering how absurdly small the potential audience is, it requires a lot of word-of-mouth to produce an impact to make Nvidia start playing ball.
Maxwell is a mobile first design and will be in Tegra. They've committed to open source Tegra support, so we expected some trickle down effect for discrete Maxwell.
