Lot's of small hidden interactions. Trying to interact with a power socket gives an electric shock

Now the new activity would be making Shelly running around and pressing hidden buttons everywhere

NVIDIA have released some GPU documentation on GitHub

jensIf you look at the bare fact of releasing this documents and forget all history,

Why should we forget all history? Nvidia caused this mess, refused to fix it, and now provides documentation that still doesn't help with it and refuses to answer the direct question about fixing it as well. Should we now cheer? If Nvidia wants community to react positively, they should stop acting as jerks.

This whole problem isn't really dependent on their support of enterprise market, extensions and the blob. I.e. nothing should stop them from keeping their blob, without blocking Nouveau from working. Except, that would create an option for users to use Nouveau instead of the blob. So they are using firmware control as a market manipulation tool. I don't see any excuse for that. It's the same nasty lock-in like methodology, like many others they use (CUDA and so on).

Giving them a pass on this behavior only encourages it.

I consider anti-competitive behavior of that sort to be a jerk behavior, so I see no point in holding back from calling it that way. Whether it's a fault of specific Nvidia employees or some collective decision making there, isn't really that relevant. The company as a whole represents that stance, and can be criticized for that.

Just to be clear, it's not the fault of those who use Nvidia, that Nvidia does this kind of stuff. It's Nvidia's fault.
