    And I enjoy both playing on both Linux and Windows without all the mess I had with NV drivers. I also have working Android emulator that I never managed to run with NV driver on Linux, and it crashed with NV driver on Windows.

      Don't lie.

      Windows is below 75%. Mac is just above 15%. You can do math, but you choose not to.

      30 years ago Linux had a grand total of 1 user.

        I don't lie but you do by shoving the wrong inapplicable statistics. Here's the right one: https://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/

        And check MacOS and Linux vanishingly tiny market shares for what matters, i.e. gaming.

        I have no mess with NVIDIA drivers both under Linux and Windows. It all just works. There's no need to lie and make things up.

          oh wow, where is all this hate coming from

          • Well, this is awesome.
            I am a bit sad that Pascal architecture gets out of it..
            Hope that nouveau driver will catch up at least till Pascal cards..

            So right now there will be,
            A proprietary driver that supports all cards( kernel space + userspace ),
            A closed userspace driver that supports a opensource kernel space driver,
            And nouveau

            Am I right?

              Again with the fake news.

              Nvidia makes it quite clear that this is all about corporations and data centers. The Phoronix article also makes this clear. "already production-ready for data center GPU usage."

              Gamers are second fiddle for Nvidia. It's the corporate big wigs buying $50,000 A100 accelerators that Nvidia cares about. That's why they got an immediate production-ready code. If I gave you $50,000 dollars, you'd care about me too. That's not to say that gamers are un-important. But it's clear that money is talking much louder here than anybody in this discussion board.

                That's a nice shift of the goal posts.

                  Hey, you said something about MacOS, tell me again who the fuck is shifting the goal posts?

                  Now check your beloved Linux market share for the past 10 years: https://gs.statcounter.com/os-market...arly-2009-2022

                  0.69% in 2009, 2.3% this year, so I was wrong by the whole fucking 0.3%, i.e. no one seriously considers its existence and most people have no clue what Linux is just like 20 years ago. And statcounter for fuck's sake? Really?

                  Again, where it matters, gaming, Linux is close to 1%. Datacenters and shit you're so keen to talk about? Absolute most installations are NVIDIA, AMD is a very distant second.

                  Anyways, I've totally lost you and your "counter" arguments. Tell me again what you're trying to dispute because I absolutely don't understand why you intervened.

                    Guess I don't have to feel bad about buying an RTX 3090 last summer at all.
                    I don't about guilt, but you need to be ashamed. So much money for single gpu
