I suppose it was only a matter of time. The fact NVIDIA provides video drivers for Linux should have been proof enough that NVIDIA loves Penguins, too, but even I had a bit of doubt that the nForce chipset would receive full Linux support.
The arrival of nForce Linux drivers provides the platform with Ethernet networking and basic ACI audio support. USB and IDE will work with standard Linux drivers. (USB and IDE use standard Windows drivers, as wellthe benefits of a standards-compliant interface, I suppose.)
I'm not a Linux user, but I think the release of these drivers is definitely a good thingeven if it did make me look like a doubting Thomas.
