it is also very inaccurate to begin with. No software is 'deleted', they added a commandline option for users of the blob, to make things even more convenient for us. ~ and just so you know, i have nvidia installed, but could kill X, unload nvidia then load Nouveau and start X again (no reboot). So i don't see where you get that idea to begin with.
you need to grow up, or at least be a little more honest with yourself.

LOL, you are telling me to take things less seriously, and you are getting all upset about an obvious hyperbole.
That whole post was tongue-in-cheek, and that's obvious.
And the kiddie is obviously RealNC. You should take your own advice some time.
If you want Optimus functionality, use OS X or Windows.
In many ways Linux is just plain sub-par for a desktop environment.
People can argue about licenses and specs and everything else for years but the anecdotal evidence is clear: 1% market share.
I think that ends the thread now.
three, I started out (when talking to you) by trying to figure out where you were getting your information about nvidia + dmabuf ~ and passing off a link to the source code of dmabuf and asking you for some clarification on the matter, since you seemed to be talking as if you new more about it, than had been recently discussed / news about it. ~ that is it.
again, take a chill pill.
No hard feelings, eh? If I've offended you, sorry. Wasn't my intention.
I'm finding it increasingly difficult to have a normal discussion over here, it inevitably turns into fanboy flaming very soon. That's why I don't post much anymore, and only come for (very rare) interesting news from developers.
Do you think obvious lying on the internet will make me look stupid, or make you stupid?
The thread was (in part) about nvidia drivers blacklisting nouveau. That's when I bemoaned nvidia's treatment of nouveau. The off-topic stuff was brought about by other people.The thread was about the nvidia drivers NOT about "fuck nvidia" or "nvidia needs to open their drivers"
But Nvidia (although using a different development model) also does a good job at providing good drivers, they may not be perfect ~ no driver is and frankly 'perfection' is something to strive towards, not necessarily something attainable.
anyway, again no hard-feelings
