I didn't expect Nvidia to implement this on Linux.

Remember this?

Nvidia finally fixed this on the open source variant of 525 drivers. They also mentioned that fixing for closed source drivers requires upgrading the toolchain so we shouldn't expect a fix soon. Welp :man_facepalming:

It seems like they are stepping up their linux game, also reported;

With the NVIDIA 525.23 driver release, their open-source GPU kernel driver code has seen some improvements. That open kernel driver now supports display rotation under X11 along with Quadro Sync, Stereo, and YUV 4:2:0. Additionally, the driver now supports Indirect Branch Tracking (IBT) when enabled by the kernel on supported platforms.

Maybe it the increase in Linux usage and/or they want to get in good with Valve to knock AMD out of the Steam Deck. :man_shrugging:

That is scary, a pay to play model, but it also seems geared for corporations, which is still bad. I can't see them forcing regular users to pay to use their computer, but we are in late stage capitalism so throw all goats for profits, and users be damned, I guess.

Also, if it catches on, don't think AMD and Apple won't mimic this. Intel is just the first one out the door.

In the '80s the scheme was upgradable CPUs/sockets. The old machine getting slow because of newer applications hardware demands? Just buy a new machine you can 'upgrade' to a higher CPU when they become available, thereby extending the life of the machine's usefulness. The problem arose that the newest CPUs used newer or different sockets/pins/framework/buses and wouldn't work in the older machines.

I just stuck with my trusty XT.

Old IBM and....PC DOS 2.0. Who doesn't love a good floppy? You had to give thanks to the Gods that the next time you stuck it in, it wouldn't be corrupted. The Gods usually were not kind. :notes: Those were the days :notes:

Hi folks, happy Thanksgiving first for those of you who celebrate it.
What do you guys think of this?
Seems to me a bit provocative but not sure about the facts.

I wish I could live off advertising revenue, too.
On the other hand, I would hate to be dependent on it. :grin:

You have to give them kudos for choosing 'snaps'. Nothing gets the blood boiling than hearing that as an alternative. :laughing: :fire: :poop:
