Nvidia, F*** You
It’s not unusual to wonder onto an Nvidia forum and see a fair amount of rage regarding compatibility and service issues. It’s a known fact that Nvidia often forces you to constantly update your graphics cards, but being a sole Nvidia user I am glad to say that I’ve never experienced a problem that could not be solved. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for Linux users.
Speaking at a speech in what seems to be a university in Finland, Linux mastermind Linus Torvalds was told a story by one of the attendees about how she struggled to get her Nvidia graphics card to work with her Linux system. Apparently, Nvidia replied to her by saying that they do not provide support for Linux, and practically never will. This prompted a, well; let’s call it an entertaining response from the Linux head honcho.
After basically calling Nvidia the worst hardware company to work with, Torvalds decides to publically make his opinion of Nvidia known. To be honest, I kind of sympathize with Linux users and Linux as a whole, as not having support from one of the industry’s largest hardware manufacturers is a massive downside when considering Linux.
Then again, who in the hell would consider it in the first place?
