Is this normal? Won't Ubuntu install proprietary drivers?
While I can understand there are reasons this would be definite reason
to choose Suse once again on my next install. Last time I checked
decent dual view was impossible in the open source drivers. I have 3
monitors and a TV connected to 2 Nvidia cards, so my setup is somewhat
complicated to get working without proprietary drivers.
I am on this mailing list because I may one day switch to Ubuntu once
my current project (it needs windoze) is finished and I can decently
format my pc. If Ubuntu would not accept free proprietary drivers that
would be a definite "no go" to ubuntu  for me.
