    Oh you stop whining while AMD's card can't even do proper 2D, or keep the system running for some days without hard cock up.

    The unannounced driver was 260.19.26, not 260.19.21.

    Nvidia's driver has been stable for a long time and they rarely add new features. Fermi users have been asking for OC and SLI support for more than half a year now because they expected it to work when they bought their card just like it would with other Nvidia products. In this driver they have added a new feature and what is it...? 3D Vision Pro support that barely will be used.

    While it's good to have it on Linux, maybe Nvidia should change their priority list a little and first bring the customers what they ask for and then the extras...

    IMO 3D Vision is more important than SLI.

    Yup, 3d support is fairly important to their bread and butter high end professional market. Where there is relatively little need for SLi support in linux until something can actually push the cards hard enough to make use of it.
