... which is not part of Fedora, is not Free Software and in fact doesn't
have source code available at all for the main portion, thus making it
impossible for anybody other than nVidia to fix any issues with it. And
there have been plenty of those issues, and there will undoubtedly be more
in the future.

It is completely counterproductive to recommend hardware requiring
proprietary drivers. Those drivers are NOT SUPPORTED in Fedora, if there's
any issue with them, you're on your own (we'll close the bugs CANTFIX as
there's really nothing we can do to fix them, see the first paragraph).
