I suspect there may be even more definitions of free.  If I steal something,
and don't get caught, it is free.  There are also multiple versions of
"free" depending on what license a given piece of software is released
under.  So, you will need to be a bit more specific.

That's what I did those 4 years ago...and they fixed my problem...and it was
"free of charge".

So, yes, by all means...please do point them to Nvidia for help.
