Manjaro 24.0 Wynsdey released

Quick feedback after having reinstalled my old MSI GS70 STEALTH PRO (4710HQ + GTX860M (Kepler)).
It was sorely needed after months or not having ran updates, so a reinstall would pose less of an issue. But I digress.

This 24.0 release with KDE 6 has been working flawlessly on this old machine! Really wonderful, my thanks!

But a question arises. Eventually X.org will be phased out.

Since this old Kepler GPU needs the legacy video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-470xx-prime to fully perform and thus X.org. Since NVK does not, and from my understanding will not get support for Maxwell and older Kepler/Fermi.

What are the thought on how legacy support can best be handled?
