I think what he is saying is that not every bug found by a user running
the Nvidia proprietary driver is necessarily an Nvidia bug.
Neither do/did i. I just said "Well, that's a problem.". The problem
starts with, the user cant file a bug report, because it gets most
likely (if not for sure) closed due to the fact he runs the closed
source driver. I know that as a Bugzapper. We even have a button to
close such bugreports.
I did run long enough the propietary fglrx driver. So i know it's a
problem to run closed source drivers. Thank god this is over since
F-12 and the mesa-dri-drivers-experimental. And it will be over for
nvidia users as well, beginning with F-13.
