    Do you really think X will remain as it is for decades to come? Perhaps you'd prefer that it stagnate just so you can use some blob driver, which has plenty of issues with it anyway.
    Open source drivers, and access to hardware specs, really have far more advantages over closed source drivers and closed hardware specs.
    Nvidia never announces upcoming features until they have something to present to the public. That is nothing new. Nvidia also stated that they had no plans to provide hardware decoding at one time as well but wham out of no where vdpau was released.

      There is also a 'chance' every winter that there will be snow on the ground in Canada. It is never guaranteed but the chance falls heavily in favour of it.

      • Haha, I love the "curve ball" argument.

        Poor nvidia, suffering from the "curve balls" by the evil community, instead of simply releasing the specs for the hardware millions of people have purchased, and are not allowed to use, understand, or program.

        But no, it's the "curve balls" that are the problems, but our heroes are dealing well with such brutal attacks.

        And then there is the argument that boycotting OSS produces great OSS drivers (nouveau), which is preferable to supporting the community financially and by providing specs and assistance.

By that time I've made enough money to fed the family for 5 years, invest and have those investments mature to pay their college with all the new hardware they need to get education done.

          So in reality it is your family that has passed on, mine is alive and thriving.
          the paradox is you are right here but you don't get the point that nvidia users KILL Other Poor humans.

          nvidia and nvidia users kill childs but not the own one right.

            LMAO, sorry but the medical research being done with Cuda is even saving the lives of poor ATI FOSS users.

              So I wish to use the plan9 kernel with wayland and nvidia blobs or ati blobs for that matter will work?

                no cuda for medical research means they need to buy higher priced nvidia hardware and lost money on that expensiv stuff because they can not use cheap amd gpu cards.

                people dieing and nvidia kills people because of CUDA because they got to much money to high profit ot of there cuda crap cards.

                if the medical resarsch use amd stream sdk they can save more people because they can buy more cheaper cards and do more calculations.

                in an matter of fakt an hd5850 do have full speed at 64bit and an gtx480 does only have 1/8 speed in 64bit tasks and Tesla is very expensiv.

                Nvidia really kills many humans in medical research because of this anti human CUDA politics

                  Lol, since Nvidia supports both Cuda and openCL you have no point at all, meanwhile the open source drivers are delivering 0 results.

                    rather than pointing and laughing at the lack of X/Y/Z in free software - get coding or stfu?

                      opensource "nvidia" drivers deliver 0 results.
                      radeon is delivering maybe 30% of nvidia blob results.
                      I still do not understand amd though.
