Nvidia(NASDAQ:NVDA) Just Published A Ton Of GPU Hardware Documentation On GitHub, But There’s A CatchForbes #Open_SourceAugust 9, 2019
Whether it’s the existing threat of AMD’s already excellent open source graphics support on Linux, the looming threat of Intel’s Linux-friendly dedicated GPUs in 2020 , or just the kindness of their corporate hearts, Nvidia did something unexpected this week.

Phoronix had the story first, citing an email from an Nvidia representative which reads: “NVIDIA has released public, freely available (MIT licensed) documentation of portions of its GPU hardware interface.
This is a work in progress; not all interfaces have been published.”
This is important for several reasons.
First, it allows the developers of the open source ” Nouveau ” driver to make forward progress in that driver’s performance and compatibility.
While the Nouveau driver is included in the Linux kernel, it’s less than ideal for things such as gaming.
Second, the presence of this documentation on GitHub accompanied by an MIT license (which grants the right to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, and distribute software based on it) creates more opportunities for the open source community to do what it does best: make things better through collaboration.
Do you love Linux and the community creating it?
As I picked up my morning coffee, I scoped out the place for possible prey. A new cock to suck from a suitable guy was on my breakfast menu. I made eye contact with a good-looking 30-something but quickly realized that he was a former conquest. As he approached to say hello, I raised my hand like a traffic cop and shook my head no. He stopped and retreated, obviously disappointed. I was looking for some fresh meat. However, I was so horny and hungry for cock and hot cum that if nothing new was to my liking I would go back to the 30-something, but I had to act quickly, as always.
