    I would not reconsider if they *completely* dropped 6/7 support right now, instead of just relegating it to a legacy branch. I've gotten a good run out of that laptop, the bad state it's in, it won't last long anyway. Though if I'll buy a new laptop anytime soon (not likely), it'll be pure Intel. But for desktops, I will definitely look at Nvidia should the integrated Intel GPU turn out to not be enough. It's what already happened with me - I started with just the iGPU, but there were a few things I wanted to play that the iGPU couldn't handle, so I also have a Geforce GTS450.

      Yes Intel onboard can be really annoying when you compare the Win vs Linux speed/features. Like you can not play Rage via wine with HD 4000 on Linux - but even a relatively simple GT 630 (oem) is enough. The nvidia card is only a tiny bit faster.

        Go to project IRC, ask if someone needs a card, send it.

          You don't contribute anything except posts like these. It's fucking annoying.

            I wonder what steve blobs (ms/apple) would say if a hw company refused to work with them

            pluck screw?
            duck two?

            something like that i would imagine, i've no doubt worse things have been said in closed board rooms anyway.

              Michael, how long are you going to allow this completely juvenile behavior? Serious question.

                Do not mix Michael here please. Everyone is free to have a view point. Asdx has it. You too.

                If you don't use nvidia hardware, why do you write in this thread?

                If you use nvidia hardware and you are unhappy with how it performs, buy AMD.

                I did. Twice. I didn't like anything about it, including results. Only exception being the hackers who push the open stack further.

                If you use nvidia hardware and you want nouveau to perform better, code or donate the hardware. Don't waste your effort here.

                People who use nvidia blob do this in their own responsibility. It would be much better if you have published your results and experiences with hardware and software stack you use.

                We have already like 10 trolls on this forum, who either provoke or accuse linux for not having windows-like crap. Instead of trolling, its better to code or help improve, that's my personal experience. Would be one troll less and one contributor more.

                  Every community that grows to a sufficient size has to deal with its poisonous people, or risk being controlled by them. The fact that every thread on the forums here eventually devolves into a shouting match between the same few people is a good sign that this community is already on the road to ruin.

                    It's his site. Therefore his responsibility to keep it clean from crap.

                    Saying "fuck you" in every thread about Nvidia is not "a view point". It's being a juvenile idiot. And when he then goes further and says "fuck you" directly to people (including a Nvidia dev!) that's behavior that warrants a timeout (temporary ban). And if it continues, a permanent ban.

                    That's not a solution. If inappropriate behavior is not dealt with, it will continue to go on and on and on. And on.

                    Why are you advocating allowing a person to write "fuck you" all the time without repercussions, while not allowing others to say they find it annoying and requesting that something is done about it? That's ridiculous. You're giving people the go-ahead to be obnoxious.

                      I can see where this is going...so many petty attacks that end up derailing every single darn thread. It does not just happen in the nvidia section it also happens in the AMD/ATI section too.

                      There are a lot of upset people in both camps and that ends up in a clusterfuck

                      I for one am sad my favorite GPU's coming to the end of the line and hopefully Nouveau will be as rock solid as the blob soon!
