If/when it stops working I'm sure it will be due to the hardware
Yes, NVidia is very good at supporting their legacy hardware...so it
have been appropriate to use a company that isn't, just to be fair and
have someone read your message out of context and believe you are
I _am_ knocking NVidia. They should open their damn drivers ;)
Why, instead of you choosing an OS that cooperates with vendor efforts?
First, they claim that they don't own what you want them to give you,
and second, what basis do you have to tell them what to do even if that
was a legal option for them?
On the other hand, if Linux were more cooperative with vendor drivers
perhaps there would soon be a large enough base of users that would make
it attractive to have a source-available driver and they would pay what
it takes to obtain the right to do that.
