I have NVidia boards on two desktop computers and one Dell laptop, and I
don't have any trouble at all with NVidia. And I know both the desktop PCs
are running the NVidia software, /not/ the Linux nouveau FOSS s/w that
does not have the full complement of features. I know the Dell is using
NVidia s/w also,
since the login screen shows an NVidia logo momentarily. You may not be
aware that there is a contingent of Linux users who are ready to puke if
mentions commercial software, whether made freely available or not, and
this contingent obviously has no use for Nvidia software and takes every
to complain and besmirch it on emails and forums. If there is some
particular video card you are interested in, I think a trip to Google
and a mention of the
specific card and Linux will bring you some useful advice, but beware of
the group I mentioned above!
PS--I have no financial of other interest in NVidia products.
