    I don't speak "batshit insane".
    I do. (I have to due to my job)

    Translation: NVIDIA driver does not work on RC kernels... it's Linux developer's fault... I'm also going to buy Apple products out of spite for Linux...

    Overall it's kind of bullshit. Expecting NVIDIA drivers to work on kernels released 1-2 days before is not realistic.

      Well, before the security issue was not even public.

          there is nothing in copyright law that says something like "but if google is asking, then you could fuck copyright holders"

            That doesn't mean Nvidia didn't know in advance.
