NVIDIA & Linux...

Torvalds Slams NVIDIA's Linux Support while this Linux user, as many others, is a big supporter and fan of NVIDIA for their EXCELLENT support of that operating system. (Disclosure: currently typing on a Windows machine--also with NVIDIA.) Then, when an Nvidia Engineer Asks How the Company Can Improve Linux Support in response to Linus, I became a even bigger fan. It's not exactly like Nvidia owes anybody: it's that they're responsive to their customers, even a small segment of them. Perhaps considering that Linux is becoming established in economies with a lot of potential for growth?

The comments to the first linked article have plenty of matter like this; the article the second link points to, however, has plenty of  material regarding users' experiences with NVIDIA that show mileage may vary.
