I want to re-iterate that just because NVIDIA supports GBM doesn't mean wlroots will officially support NVIDIA.

I welcome NVIDIA's move of implementing the standard APIs, it's a nice step forward. However, it's still closed source. That means not only developers are forced to install closed source software on their machine, but also that they work with a black box.

We're routinely sending patches to upstream and downstream projects like the kernel drivers, Mesa, GTK, Firefox, etc. This is only possible because they're open-source software.

Note, this policy isn't against NVIDIA specifically, but against all proprietary drivers.

If it works, good for you. If it doesn't work, you're on your own. (We still accept patches, if they're not workarounds.)

@emersion we only support what we can understand & fix. good general principle for civilization in general.
