With NVIDIA's current Linux release cycle, we will likely find the next Linux display driver release to come later this month or early May, and then no new drivers until the August or September timeframe. It looks like this year we will come across four official driver releases, while the red is anticipated to provide 12 releases, or perhaps 13 if they come across any special occasions or critical patches. For those Linux users that have recently purchased a newer GeForce 7 part, this release should be what they have been waiting for.
