    The nvidia proprietary driver is great if you love booting to a black screen.

    It has good gaming performance, but outside of that it's brittle and breaks your system if you even look at it wrong

    The best gpu drivers on linux are intel. They 'just work' better than anything else.

      Proprietary drivers sucks, you need to patch for new kernels or wait several weeks, no easy way to roll back, no X running while installing, no way to fix bugs by yourself. AMD open source drivers runs fine and beats nvidia blobs, see phoronix benchmarks.

        Firefox is made by non-pro rusty programmers and requires buggy and resource hog pulseaudio.

          You clearly have not used OSS AMD drivers in many years. In a word, excellent.

            I'm using it right now and there is a flickering checkerboard glitching square about 200x200 pixels on two of my monitors. This machine also has a nVIdia card driving two other monitors, everything perfect there.

            About 5 minutes ago a Windows VM using a passthrough AMD GPU just bluescreened running some simple OpenGL code I'm working on. I've rebooted the same machine with a nVidia card passed through, works great. AMD sucks.

              if the problem is outdated mesa versions, why not blacklist those outdated mesa versions instead of blacklisting the driver?

                I've been running the AMD drivers very successfully one a pretty wide range of hardware for some time now.
                The nVidia proprietary drivers do work, but force you to stick with certain older kernel and X releases.

                My experience with nouveau has been almost entirely negative however.

                  I wouldn't even be running AMD but I have a whole bunch of AMD cards left over from the old mining days.
                  It's just amazing how you trying put blame for your overheated hardware on AMD when you're likely have issues with memory corruption or BGA degradation.

                  I rarely use my RX580 on Linux these days and mostly through DRI_PRIME, but on Windows / Mac VMs it's work flawlessly.

                    Watching a ChiCom at Google blacklist the only open source video driver platform is so deliciously fantastic that it might actually wake up a few lefties for once. How's that CoC taste now?
