Well I certainly have no regrets about ditching Microsoft completely (and utterly).

So much more relaxing. And flexible. And, well, everything.

Indeed. Windows seems so difficult by comparison, but they like to put pressure on manufacturers it seems. Sad.

I hear about this the other day too, it is pretty devious of them to castrate the Linux drivers to make them as weak as Windows, just to please ol' billy boy and his company's inability to produce something that people working for nowt can do at home!!

I'll still back nVidia for their hardware though, but, yeah, this driver issue isn't going to please anyone but those working for the wrong side of the operating system fence...
