    What the hell is the obsession here with marketspeak? Marketdroidian newspeak derivatives aren't something to aspire to ... What about:

    "NVIDIA has released a new beta 100.14.03 Linux driver, adding support for the newer GeForce 8 series graphics cards (or just cards)."

    Thanks ... I hate marketspeak, with a passion.

    On topic: Good news. It'll be interesting to see OpenGL benchmarks between the 7950 GT, the 8600 GTS and the 8800 GTS with these drivers.

    DX9 = no work (unless WINE or CEDEGA...) But those are buggy... So hopefully M$ will start making software for linux...:D
