And that is, and will always be, "WRONG", and Nvidia has done squat about it -again, stfu<-Nvidia !
whats wrong with having Linux "3D bullshit"-cad,..., capability if you need it on your new (Linux) Laptop ???
Thats what I want.
However, as your "rats ass" pointed out, not everybody needs it. So what. It doesn't matter, Nvidia should make Optimus work for Linux as it does for WinBlowz. The power is there if you need it, 'cause we've dam well paid for the hardware ! geeezus.
If a Linux programmer, or whoever just needs VESA/Open on there laptop, well then whoop-de-doooo, thats fine too ?
But for gawd sakes Nvidia, atleast provide the ability(proper-Linux-Optimus-switching-driver) on my very expensive Nvidai-GPU-Laptop.
If not?, then again: F_CK YOU ! <- Nvidia, go drown in your tablets.
*cough* Red Flag China Linux distro *cough*; millions to billions of AMD low-end cards bought because nVidia wasn't open source.

I'll take it back when I see a reliable source for that information, or when I see the revenue in AMD's SEC filings. :p

Nvidia's big wins in the mobile sector? I can remember about two Tegra3 phones so far. Unless you count tablets as mobile, which they really aren't (can't fit in your pocket).
Well, yeah... I do consider tablets to be mobile devices... since they're mobile: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_computing

derp dee derrrrrrr
Ohh well... we'll see how the Nexus 7 does. :)

pffft, whatever, your a bunch of losers' N-WEIRD-IA, expecially moreso, 'cause you LOST the potemtial billions of dollars worth China contracts to your only competitor, AMD.
wow, how do your STOCKHOLDERS like your "ClosedSource" attitude now N"weird"IA ???!!!
Let's bitch about:
-nobody can screw the Linux kernel devs who work on GPU's;
-you can't fix stupidity, so who cares about Linux' image;
-nVidia has buyers, which are OK with the blob;
-If they experience a problem, blob or free, it is what they experience.
Now either that or let's go back to why we think that nVidia sucks, because it's funny, regardless of logical correctness :D
Fuck you Nvidia!
i do love to read this topic.... i think that now is the time to go into intel GPU then buying discreet GPUs. yes intel GPU could be seen as a limited GPU compared to nvidia/ati GPU. yet it works fine to what i have on my linux box. Valve's move to linux environment is good and has good effect in the open source world, kernel fixes, intel drivers improvements, games soon to be released.
I like to think of intel GPU the equivalent of a console GPU hardware, you are stuck with it for a couple of years so i do really hope that games will be optimized for it, rather than trying to play high end game with a drivers that update comes as rain in the dessert.
