True, but i915_* and radeon_* also figure prominently. I don't believe kerneloops.org provides
conclusive evidence that the Free graphics drivers are any more reliable than nvidia. My own
(subjective) experiences with a number of i915 and nvidia machines are similar. Both run pretty
well, but the intel machines aren't immune to problems.
Personally I think the claim of FUD has some merit. The nvidia driver isn't perfect, but I don't see
evidence that the Free drivers are doing a significantly better job, and nvidia have demonstrably
If you want to use only Free software, then fine. If you're unhappy with the additional maintenance
overhead, or the fact that nvidia drop support for older cards out of newer drivers then that's also
fine. However, If you want to claim the nvidia drivers are bug-ridden and imply that the Free
drivers are intrinsically more reliable then, at the moment, I don't think the evidence is there.
