    Phoronix: NVIDIA & Valve Line Up Among The Sponsors For X.Org's XDC 2018

    The initial list of sponsors have been announced for the annual X.Org Developers' Conference (XDC2018) where Wayland, Mesa, and the X.Org Server tend to dominate the discussions for improving the open-source/Linux desktop...

    How about spending the money on implementing GBM Wayland support instead of a conference sponsorship?

      I don't share your feeling that it's great seeing NVIDIA there. If they're not going to at least give signed firmware, let alone documentation or even Open Source driver support for their consumer cards, then I'd rather they stay the hell away altogether. You have Valve, Intel, AMD, Xorg, Linux & Mesa all marching to one tune and then you have NVIDIA, this toxic outsider that is playing their own separate tune over the top of everyone elses creating disharmony and problems.

        NVIDIA is the best.

        Maybe even better than X.org itself.

        I don't know... it's a toss-up.

          Who would sponsor a Wayland conference then?

            Pretty sad troll attempt, but you're new here, so it will take you a while to reach the dizzy heights of johnc and co. My bet is that most of the conference will focus on stuff that's more related to Wayland than X, which is a pretty natural consequence of all the X devs being 100% onboard regarding the shift to Wayland.

              I am even afraid of thinking what i will get if i google this: 'deep color'

              Quote: 'It's great seeing NVIDIA sponsor the event as well considering they don't get much credit in open-source circles but tend to be involved each year with XDC and usually have a handful of developers attending and contributing to areas of common ground like VR, deep color / HDR, etc.'


              can anyone clarify?

                Deep Color is just what NVidia calls HDR support, which could provide various formats like FP16 RGBA. As opposed to existing support like True Color for 24 bit formats.
