Strange, I have no problems using nouveau. Why is it a joke?
Lack of 3D acceleration
Lack of feature support
Lack.. of CUDA
Lack..lack of fan/temp controls
Hmmm.. lack... or lacking... period.
NON OEM - This may not be an issue to you, but I use OEM software and/or drivers ie: HPLIP, nvidia, etc. v. community drivers like noveau. unless there is no OEM support ie: Kodak AIO5500 via cups2eps
Yes in some cases the community may provide better drivers/software, which is fine, and if thats the case I would use those except in the case of video. I want nVidias drivers, period. KMS support is NOT of interest or required by me. Nor is 90% of the features of the card(s) I have. I have a card specifically to drive multiple monitors at high resolution for desktop and video playback on anything from 22 to 37"
AND more importantly in the vain of this topic...
users coming from another "OS" expect [demand] the OEM to provide the software/drivers they need. If you think there is going to be any change in ways or learning from these users on how drivers etc. work in Linux, BSD, etc.. You can fuhggeddit! Thats not happening.--
