Lets be clear Dermot.
If the Open Source driver worked as I needed it to, I'd use it, unequivocally.
If the company would make the information available on getting the S-Video port
working, and I thought there was a meaningful contribution I could make, I'd do
Had Tralee had a PCI card in a shop, the day I went shopping, which had an Open
Source driver for Linux, I'd have bought that card over the Nvidia.
Failing that the only requirement for the card was that it a) worked with Linux
and b) had S-Video out.
I agree with the socio-political argument for Open Source and I support the
notion of sharing scientific information since, without that there _is no_
scientific method... just blackboxes and magic potions inside of them...
But none of that helps me watch the Fly II, with Eirc Soltz and (random girl)
on Saturday, after working YASHW.
Yet another seventy hour week.
