    Can we talk about, the fact that Nvidia - a company that isn't really well known for supporting and publishing OSS - is using a fork of DXVK (https://github.com/NVIDIAGameWorks/dxvk-remix/) and don't even mention the original authors in the README or some kind of explanation of the software. Also no explanation of what they changed and why this isn't upstream?

    Instead you have to go to the original license file (Nvidia re-licensed DXVK from zlib to MIT) to even get the names of the original authors:


    They even do the bare, bare minimum to comply to the original license:

    The license even _asks_ for an acknowledgment and Nvidia chose to ignore it.
    They didn't relicense. Nvidia's MIT is explicitly said to be MIT for remix parts (in the name of commit), and all old related stuff is in license old. This is really stupid bait.

    They even do the bare, bare minimum to comply to the original license:
    The origin of this software must not be misrepresented; you must not claim that you wrote the original software. If you use this software in a product, an acknowledgment in the product documentation would be appreciated but is not required.
    The license even _asks_ for an acknowledgment and Nvidia chose to ignore it.


    Also it seems like the total open source code of Remix is basically _only_ their DXVK fork. It intercepts the calls and sends them to their (currently) closed source RTX executable (NvRemixBridge.exe) if I understand the documentation correctly.
