Most? Bah, I seriously doubt that. Think of the zillion Linux boxes
running as servers everywhere. They don't put a nvidia card in those
boxes, and they actually want support from a company. Putting the
nvidia drivers on a box automatically invalidates all paid support
contracts, and all help from anyone in the open source community.
Hence, those users deserve what they get :)
Off to break the nvidia driver by changing the kernel interfaces again,
this is becoming a fun hobby...
