It would be silly to expect a nVidia to support a few distros

and you have what 10 - 20 builds per driver version?  What about the
near most
popular distros.  They will whine and cry foul.
I guess you never used or do not remember how quirky the installation
process was before Nvidia created the unified installer that they use

They *DID* create "10-20 builds per driver version" - MORE. In fact
there were 2 rpms to install. I used this between RH7.2 till RH9(?) I

Now, if you can convince the Linux community to stop forking and making
a new
distro for every little difference, then amalgamate the remaining 2000
or so
distros into 3, then I might have a change of heart on that topic.
Ultimately it does not depend on the exact distribution. The primary
issues are the kernel version and X-server version.
