  Boot freeze due to Nvidia Geforce GTX 950M

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When running Ubuntu 17.10 on my laptop which has a "Nvidia Geforce GTX
  950M" and a "Intel HD Graphics 530" graphic card, the boot process

  The cause is that the current Linux kernel does not include FOSS drivers for 
"Nvidia Geforce GTX 950M".
  The solution to avoid that freeze is to add the "nomodeset" grub boot 
parameter or to install the proprietary Nvidia driver.

  My concern is that you have to be aware of that circumvent when installing 
Ubuntu OS for the first time.
  I think that it would be more logical that the Linux kernel uses the low 
performance graphic card "Intel HD Graphics 530" by default, without trying to 
use "Nvidia Geforce GTX 950M" which is not natively supported.
  That would avoid the bad experience of boot freeze at first meeting.
