    And once again, NVIDIA doesn't care about desktop users. They care about professional Quadro gpus for professional companies at hollywood that use linux to do rendering and all those fancy stuff. And I can do plenty of other examples.

    Nvidia has only engineers, and engineers generally don't give a shit about linux, open source, gpl and all these "socialist" concepts. They do what they are paid for = a good driver for the platform they target.

    All the rest is just "ok, you get even support for geforce because that's fine". I'm still not sure why everyone is unable to understand this.

    Anyways, yes maybe nvidia is loosing market under Linux for the "desktop", but I could reply that there isn't any official Linux desktop market. It's business people.

    Intel on the other hand, has another history on the background and thinks in a different way. But Intel doesn't have the know how NVIDIA has with GPU, so a comparison is pointless.

    Its true, intel currently needs only faster hardware.

    AMD could back up easily if they would target speed and expand development base by any means possible and DROP fglrx.

    Bad times for nvidia.
