I personally have a 540M, for which the "newest" supporting drivers are

But I'm not gonna block this, I'm just irate with the status quo
upstream is delivering. Noveau support is just as flaky and so my only
option is "hey, just stop using video acceleration", which, amongst
other things, makes video conferencing impossible.

So I'm not going to cite Linus'es opinions on Nvidia verbatim here, but
if you know what they are, well, pretend I did :)

( And please, no nonsense about upgrading hardware, unlike upgrading
software, upgrading hardware isn't free )
