for desktop i would rather prefer (and did that many times) to run some
fast computer headless and have at least 1 (but more preferably) X
terminal made from 486-Pentium with old, but supported graphics.
Moreover, the nv driver does not provide a way to properly control
brightness and contrast. I would say it is strictly necessary for
anyone who is into photography to use the nvidia-driver, even if they
are not remotely interested in 3D.
i made cut-down X terminal distro with NetBSD 1.5 (takes 25MB total, with
all possible X servers), works fine, sound supported through nas.
most old PCI Matrox cards are best for that, all hardware 2D acceleration
works like it should, supports high refresh rates and gamma correction by
and with X terminal price equal to about 0+monitor you may have many of
this for single computer.
