The Linux users should get of their collective lazy a$$es and setup their
systems to suit themselves if they want to use non FOSS packages.

Since the current subject is Nvidia, a Windows install, for example, comes
with a 'it works' Nvidia video driver. Just like Linux does. *Not* the
fancy one from Nvidia that does all of the fancy stuff. The 'Stupid
Windows User' must go to the Nvidia site, find the proper driver for his
video card and install it to get the fancy video stuff.

So what you are saying or implying here? That 'Stupid Windows Users' know
more about their systems and how to set them up than 'Brilliant Linux
Users' do?   ;-)
