I support your statement.  Read it in a review of Fedora 13.  

I read it here:


X.org's X Server version 1.8.0, which was released in early April, is responsible for displaying the graphical user interface. Some of the proprietary graphics drivers, which are, as usual, not included in Fedora, don't co-operate with this version -- for example's NVIDIA's Legacy driver for older GeForce graphics cards. NVIDIA's current Linux driver, on the other hand, is compatible and available to install manually from add-on repositories such as RPM Fusion

Hope this clears this situation.
