Coordinating work around newer upstream Nvidia drivers for users

Hello, Aspyr Media programmer here.

I think this is a great idea.  GPU drivers have always been a rough experience for us, especially when we were ramping up our Linux development.  Having a set of “blessed” drivers that most users are installing would allows us to focus our testing on what users are actually playing games on.  With the “latest bling” section we have last-minute driver bug fixes covered so bleeding-edge driver requirements are covered.  For us, it looks like a win-win situation. 

If this gets set up I’d recommend to our QA department that we test by default on the drivers in the PPA.  That’d reduce the possibility of support requests for code you can’t fix, at least on our products.

Is there anything Aspyr can do to help?
