Re: [opensuse] Improved performance with NVidia drivers

Some distro communities complied with their demands (RH, openSUSE

nVIDIA drivers are in the non-free repo for Debian).

The others violate the license terms of the Linux kernel. They get away
with it by being ignored and not interesting targets to sue; RHT or SUSE
would not fall through the gaps.

The NVidia drivers don't explicitly forbid it, but they are incompatible
with the Linux kernel terms.
