So nvidia, doesn't contribute to the linux kernel? That's weird that you would claim they contribute nothing, when they are a heavy contributor, at least in the ARM linux kernel (and being as ARM is very popular, i think it should be taken into account). They also have contributed to X.org and probably other things, as well. Furthermore, there is nothing wrong with them requesting to use a new feature in the linux kernel, if they feel it will benefit Nvidia users... and who knows, had they been able to use it - they may have actually ended up contributing some patches to help improve dmabuf (although that is speculation, i admit).Originally Posted by Nvidia
And personally, I don't care if Intel and AMD contribute more, because at the end of the day - they could've contributed 10x the amount that Nvidia has ~ yet Nvidia's drivers slaughter both of those companies linux drivers, and their hardware slaughters ANYTHING Intel is putting out. AMD makes comparable hardware, it's just too bad, their blob is always falling behind.
