Re: Fedora 9: Leading edge or bleeding edge?

Regarding the Nvidia closed source driver: I wonder that you - as a longtime fedora user - don't know about the livna repositories, which provide all the essential but "unclean" software?

btw I also have nvidia gpu and in the past I was also angry with fedora (and other distros) for not providing theese drivers and forcing users to download them separately. But now I come to see that this policy may finally have an effect on the hardware vendors. I am going to buy a new computer this summer and I have already decided to switch to ATI's gpu because of a promise of open source drivers.
