I just found this:
(Had to add spaces because I can’t post links)
Nvidia will eventually drop support for their Nvidia cards. The Open Source Nouveau driver has saved my ancient PC from becoming a piece of scrap metal (I was forced to reinstall my Manjaro but aside of that it still works), but now I am trying Manjaro with the Open Source driver in my laptop. It’s almost like a crippled piece of useless junk. Can’t use the GPU memory. Will the Nouveau ever be good enough to use it? Will my Laptop stop working because of Nvidia’s planned obsolescence just like my older PC did?
Will the community members always be chasing around this? Years ago when I got this laptop I didn’t know Nvidia was going to be such a treacherous and anvilicious entity, heck! Other companies are NOT as greedy and don’t mean to cause as much prejudice to Linux users as this! Now I realize why Linus Torvalds flipped the finger to Nvidia. They deserve it if they want to force people to buy newer hardware like that. I’m not buying an Nvidia card anymore, I will go full AMD.
But all this rant shouldn’t mean people like me who already owned Nvidia hardware should be left stranded to fend for themselves! Is there any hope for Linux users like me? Will Nouveau use reverse engineering or something? Are we doomed to loose our hardware because it will become a useless piece of junk even when Linux could have kept it working?
