Submission + - Andy Ritger of NVIDIA on Linux Driver Development (

tykev writes: The Director of Unix Software at NVIDIA talks about Linux drivers, planned features, development cycle, and the open-source Nouveau driver. "NVIDIA's stance is to neither help nor hinder Nouveau. We are committed to supporting Linux through a) an open source 2d "nv" X driver which NVIDIA engineers actively maintain and improve, and b) our fully featured proprietary Linux driver which leverages common code with the other platforms that NVIDIA supports."

I've got a bad feeling about this.
