jppiiroinen writes "As Linus Torvalds received the Millennium prize last week for his work on Linux operating system. He was already in Finland, so the Aalto University arranged a talk session with him. During the Q&A a person asks why the NVIDIA does not play well with Linux. Torvalds explained shortly that NVIDIA has been one of the worst companies to work with Linux project, and which makes it even worse that NVIDIA ships a high number of chips for Android devices which uses Linux inside. Torvalds even summarized that to "Nvidia, f*** you!" in a playful manner.

What has been your experience on NVIDIA drivers with Linux?"
