yet another thread devolved into AMD bashing, and attempting to ignore the faults of nvidia drivers.
AMD & nivida blobs are about on par, if you don't include the video acceleration. Each have faults, just in different areas.
nvidia can not stand up to the open source drivers from AMD when viewed from the point of out of the box experience, and proper integration into an open and free software environment. If wayland takes off (which I have my own doubts about, so this is just an example), the open source drivers will work best for that.
