    was hoping that it would be about the Gallium version of the drivers being used over the classic DRI drivers for older hardware...

    Who else thought 3.10 would actually be 4.0?

    I'm kind of wondering when he'll get tired of the version numbers again. Last time he stopped it at 2.6.39.

    Maybe he'll stop it at after its all the same number <_< like 3.33 then the next release is 4.0 then it'll go till 4.44 then next release will be 5.0

    It was because 2.6 was a rolling release model. he could have kept it rolling, but the numbering system never really did make sense, so it was just an arbitrary change to make the release numbering make more sense. basically 2.6.0 should have been 3.0 from the beginning.

    Oh I know duby, I know he just changed them cuz they were getting out of hand. I'm just having a little fun with the whole thing.

    Display-less GPU support might be for Optimus support in cases where the output is on the Nvidia card.

    But at that point why not just run everything off the Nvidia GPU? Cuz you'd have to keep it on at all times anyway to power the display.

    Intel gpu will use less powe than nvidia. even if nvidia is being used for modesetting the 3d engine can be turned off.
