    Reply to #11, Ya I see YOUR point, I was just saying in general, that linux is not going to be replacing Windows, in their current respective states, for most people. Also most people are not going to want to dual-boot, for the same reason I stated, they will feel jailed in ubuntu since they will have to reboot to try many cool games/apps they find online, and will just use Windows. If even 10% of computer users could figure out HOW to dual boot.

    Wow, if that SemiAccurate article is even… *ahem* semi-accurate, it looks like nVidia is about to pull a Matrox, if they don’t disappear entirely over the next year or two.

    (And by “pull a Matrox” I mean retreat into small niche markets that nobody else cares about, where they can eke out an existence because they’re not competing directly with the major players. And by “major players” I mean Intel and AMD, since it looks like they may be the only desktop GPU vendors left once the dust settles.)

      Any time I go along the Autoroute 40 and see the matrox offices, I get a little sad. 🙁

      Please no. If Nvidia fails and folds who will be there to push the competition into better products/lower pricing? Intel? Nope they have the absolute worst drivers ever for every GPU they ever tried. Of course if they hired the Nvidia folks to code drivers, maybe. But still. Nvidia needs a change of direction.

      I say this for all the gamers like me out there (selfish as it is), that even though we make up a small percentage of sales (OEM and consoles are dominant) we NEED competition to make a better Graphics Card lineup at a reasonable price!

      Nothing against AMD, rock on team red, but really… the only major player can be a very stingy and selfish one.

        They’re not going to fold. If anything Intel may buy them, which spells bad news for AMD.

      Let me take a step back for a moment and say that I do think Sandy Bridge / Fusion, will put the squeeze on Nvidia’s low end because if the previews of Sandy Bridge / Zacate are anything to go by, Intel / AMD can probably take a slower standalone GPU design and integrate it with the CPU and the CPU-GPU combo could be on par with Nvidia’s mainstream part in terms of graphics.

      That alone, I think, would not have put Nvidia out of business (even if is forced to play in a smaller market).

      I personally think there might be some truth to what Semi-Accurate is saying but hoping Nvidia don’t do anything too stupid here.. and so far there just might be a sliver of hope left.

      I think Tegra and their ARM efforts could be something good but just not with their current Fermi designs. I would love to see them give it another try with the perspective market in mind… and I am praying they get the chance to…

      And I’m supposed to give up Photoshop, 3DS Max, Crysis, BF:BC2, and so on…to shave a few seconds off my boot time (that I rarely do anyways)? While a lot of people could probably just live with email, web surfing and typing notes into openoffice, people want the freedom to run any app/game, because you never know what you will run into later down the road or how your mood/work will change. Most people don’t want to be in position where they run accross some cool app/game and they can’t run it, because they thought email and web surfing would be all they did and then opted into an obscure OS. Most people are not that narrow visioned.
