    With the hype about Nvidia open-source event, I am prepared to be disappointed.

      Nope. I am not disappointed that this turned to a online event.

      I was anyway going to disappointed reading it on this website. Nvidia is never going to do what is needed on the open source front.

        NVIDIA on open-source:
        "We'll do X and Y but not Z"

        (Z is required to have a complete stack)

        Examples:
        - Wayland compositor support: We'll do (limited) DRM, KMS but not GBM (we'll do EGLStreams instead).
        - Optimus in 2016: We'll do PRIME switchable graphics, but not hybrid (render off-loading).
        - The useless nv driver: We'll do 2D acceleration, but no 3D and the driver is a clear mess.
        - About hardware documentation: We'll publish X and Y, but not tell you how to reclock the card.

          Drank a six pack of Corona Lite last night. Don't feel so good today. Must be Coronavirus.

            EGLStreams is 5 years older than GBM. If i'm correct, it was intel who reinvented the wheel.

              be careful,
              T-virus is in the wild, and it kills slowly.. the problem is..people don't stay dead.. it could be that someone will need to cal Alice directly assigning new target mission to her..

                I think they have done the right thing..
                Asians have strange things with them.. any major sort of deadly virus came always from the same places..covid-19,H5N1,and you can continue the list is long..

                Nvidia took the right decision, virus will have to adapt to infection trough video-calls, suck that!

                  And now Google Cloud Next '20 is a virtual conference (only), as another conference cancels their in-person event due to covad-19 concerns.

                    Apparently the Corona beer company is bleeding a fair bit of money because, yes, people are that dumb....
