Re: [opensuse-factory] Will we have additional repositories for Leap as we have currently?

It is misleading to say that Nvidia proprietary driver does not work well on
Tumbleweed. I've never had any trouble with it.

This morning I edited the Tumbleweed portal and NVIDIA-the-hard-way pages to
get rid of the misleading information.

Kind Regards,

The _exact_ reason Tumbleweed doesn't recommend using proprietary

On TW, Plasma5 doesn't work with the default driver (nouveau); it only
works with the proprietary nVidia driver so not recommending the use
of proprietary drivers means not recommending the use of Plasma5.

...or not using an NVidia GPU. :-)
