Over at NvNews Linux Forums (the hang-out for NVIDIA representatives attempting to help its users) netllama -- or better known as Lonni J Friedman -- of NVIDIA's Linux department has finally decided to state a better release time-frame than their soon statements. According to the message, it is safe to say the driver will be available by April 15. As we had mentioned numerous times, they have been aiming for an early April release -- and this latest public word seems to definitively say the driver will be out this week, or next week. Next week of course is the second week of the month, or ATI's usual monthly driver release period for both Windows and Linux. For reference, netllama's post is available here.
