    Nobody cares.

    Especially not their bottom line.

    Cope harder.

    Also funny that you say I'm rating when I literally said it works perfectly fine for me. YOU are the one complaining. So keep bitching and suffering because of Crapland.

    Just get a fucking phone and get off desktops.
    CrapWeasel, you are boring.

    Switch to OpenBSD, there's Xenocara.

    I also mentioned MacOS X, but whatever. Learn how not to be a rude arsehat and you might be taken seriously.

    Let me remind you that you are the one who replied with a rude and aggressive comment first.

    Yes. It's sad that people today don't even know how to verify information and work with it. And they just blindly mistake some half-witted trendy things.
    My ATI remembers.

    Sorry but you do not need to use Windows to get full and proper support and use of Nvidia hardware, I have been using Nvidia hardware with full acceleration on Linux for at least 2 decades, going all the way back to the days of the TNT2 I used to use with Red Hat + Ximian Gnome.

    Of course, I don't have a mental illness that compels me to only use open source drivers.

    I remember being forced to use Korora Linux because I couldn’t get the damn ngreedia drivers working with anything else.

    oh and funny you decide to insult us that wants proper open source drivers in open source OS.

    but hey, nvidia isnt a gamer company anymore, its now a datacentre server company that also makes GPUs and throws a new bone to us gamers only when the competiton forces them to compete harder

    Good luck making the average Desktop Linux person understand that the NVIDIA drivers are not some silly serialization code that the manufacturer keeps closed out of spite but are in fact a collection of highly-complex runtimes, I've been trying that for the past 15 years and didn't make any progress

    Not only is one of those APIs (CUDA) exclusive to Nvidia (read: unique selling point), but Nvidia has a reputation of being the best implementer of the other APIs (OpenGL, DirectX, OpenCL). Why would they give that away to please the whatever percent of the 1.5% of Desktop Linux users that use an Nvidia GPU on Desktop Linux? They won't.

    Though personally I don't see why ROCm is a joke other than CUDA having a huge installed base due to an early lead (I understand that CUDA's early lead happened due to Nvidia knowing the importance of software, I don't see why ROCm is allegedly a joke based on technical merits).
    they're not giving anything away their hardware is what makes it work, and they will still be the most optimised and fastest. goodwill in sharing performance increases that work on other brands cards should be something that should be competed for and a point of pride. Sponsored Open APIs will impress customers, this is what would really impress me the most more than any hundred million dollar marketing campaign. And it would cost them very little. opening DLSS to an open standard would not put them in second place at all. they would still be the fastest, it would rather make their standard an industry wide one. the opposite is what they allowed to happen is the open Vulkan standard, which they even use. Its a point of pride to have the API games use. being exclusionary on that tech just makes the API less useful. they will still have the performance lead. AMD and Intel aren't even really competing in the ultra high end anyway, but more the bang for buck. If RTX and DLSS and CUDA and their drivers were were fully open standards, Nvidia would be praised by their competition and the Linux community. they would still have the performance lead, plus goodwill. not sure why they are so adamant about not having Goodwill. If they are so afraid of having RTX/CUDA/DLSS stolen, then why are they not stealing Vulkan, the largest graphics API used on both Xbox Series X and PS5? or OpenCL. they could entirely steal those and then.... nothing. they are open standards which can be used. its the hardware and its performance lead that you cannot steal. what Nvidia and AMD should be worried about is Intel GPUs. When Intel releases their high end GPUs in a few generations, they will seriously push Nvidia and AMD stagnation into high competition. And they will have both CPU and GPU. Nvidia should develop an X86 CPU and get an X86 license if they want to keep up.

    imagine if nvidia, the largest gpu company, put a little of their billions into developing an official well maintained open source driver (not encrypted firmware deception). would it really hurt them to support linux fully with a driver that is tested properly with the biggest distros? they have the money to afford it. would be a fraction of profit. and they would earn even more money as a result. it would go a long way towards developing Linux gaming. Nvidia could completely change Linux gaming into something incredible if they wanted to. actively ensure games are brought to Linux. a few million spread over say 20 permanent developers with fully open source drivers would completely turn up the competition. they should develop open source features that everyone can use. this goodwill will go much further that they realise. goodwill is better than any advertising.
