Gotta disagree here.  I think your intense dislike for Nvidia is
clouding whatever objectivity you might have.

My experience with N's drivers has been truly excellent, and being a
gamer I'm probably pickier than most.  And BTW, I think they've shown
terrific improvement over time (I started using them when a tnt2 was
good, and just yesterday plopped in a ge4.)

I've come to respect your opinion on my relatively short time following
debian-user, but this time... well, your statement is just plain false.
