    The NVIDIA Forceware 90 series graphics driver user interface was accused of being ugly, inconvenient, and sometimes slow. People generally accused NVIDIA control panel of making tasks not accessed too often very hard to find, and not changing languages when installed on a non-English copy of Windows. NVIDIA heard the call of it's consumers, and decided to do something about it. The successor of Forceware 90 series will have a much better graphical interface, which will be applied to both XP and Vista versions of the driver.

    good to hear:toast:

    imo they should both go back to the control panel and have allot more installation options (like what you want to install and what you don't, such as services, nview, ccc <(amd has that option already though)

    Why can't they just leave somthing alone? Thats one thing I always liked about Nvidia. The original was damn near unbeatable.

    Sounds good, but they will probably mess it up like they did the 8800.

    Not like there wasn't an option to go back to the old interface.

    I switched back as soon as I got the new driver. I despise the new interface.
