            Thank you. Gpu switching is a giant pain in the dick.

              anything that enables multiple displays with Wayland and Nvidia Optimus laptops would be a miracle.

                instead of waiting for second coming of novideo, you could just buy linux-friendly hardware

                  it doesn't use it with novideo windows blob, because novideo windows blob doesn't provide it
