  • So who are these douches that took down the nvnews site?

    Seriously, what is with these dumb-f's who love to trample all over everyone else's work?

    The site isn't even affiliated with the company; it's just for enthusiasts to discuss NVIDIA stuff. I liked going there to learn about new driver releases or maybe even help people where I could.

    Along comes some asshole with a stick up his ass and decides to DoS attack the site, ruining it for everybody.

    These hacker people should be shot to death then put through a meat grinder.

    Any reason Linux/Unix users are not treated as everyone else ( https://forums.geforce.com/ ) but fenced in the *DevZone* ?
    Not to mention one needs to press page down 5 times to get to the subforum pfft: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/

    +1

    I'm not going to bother going back to nvnews either.

    Yep. I don't think the Nvidia devs intend to post at nvnews anymore.

    1st. You did more than that, you not only claimed it as factual, but then were spreading FUD and using that FUD as a form of coercion. ~ how very dishonest of you. :\ 2nd. You're right, we don't know when nvidia will support Wayland, but from what i have heard some developers say - it probably will be fairly trivial for them to do, when they do decide to support it. So how you then draw the conclusions that you do is beyond me?!

    I didn't mean to imply that you should be running Nouveau, that is entirely your decision. I currently run the nvidia blob myself, because Nouveau doesn't resume from suspend on my laptop. I meant more that we all should be supporting/encouraging the herculean efforts of the Nouveau team.
    Well, i have supported Nouveau by running RENouveau when i owned a card that wasn't yet supported. But i am not a GFX-driver programmer, and since Nouveau is missing too many features and has really bad performance compared to the blob - i don't/won't use it. ..and if you just meant we should all be supporting Nouveau - why try to spread FUD? - did you actually think that would help the cause? ...telling me i will be stuck with X or the shotty Nouveau driver - did you think that was going to get any response but some hostility???

    I also don't see what support/encouragement i am supposed to be giving to a project that i don't use (well, every couple/few months i test out nouveau, that's about it). I have nothing to offer that project and the only thing i could do to encourage them is outright lie to them about Nouveau.

    I think given the circumstances the Nouveau developers have done a decent job, but the sad truth is Nouveau doesn't touch Radeon or Intel (let alone the driver it seeks to replace, which kills radeon/intel in performance) and progress is slow... I would rather be honest in my position - which is that i prefer Nvidia's driver, even with the problems that sometimes crop up with the blob (slow to adopt certain things, the odd security flaw, etc) - at the end of the day, as far as GFX on linux - Nvidia offers decent drivers (the best, imo), that are performant and i am never stuck waiting for them to support the latest version of Xorg, which is good being as i generally stick with bleeding-dege software.

    I'm not a FOSS-evangelist and i use the best tools for the job - I am not required to hold Nouveau developers hands (whom i highly doubt need me too, either). There may come a day when Nouveau is good enough for me, but until then i am happy using the drivers Nvidia provides - which have made my Linux Desktop very nice to use and work with.
