What technology are you referring too?

But the guys behind nouveau are smart and they resolv many problems.

Maybe, but if you have a TRUE nVidia card and/or chipset it would be 
like putting square wheels on my moped to make it roll. It would 
basically work, and it would go forward, but not in the way the original 
engineer designed it.

"While the drivers include a significant amount of functionality and 
probably work on the common Linux games shipped with distributions, 
there are still some serious issues and they are not too optimized for 
performance. OpenGL applications that work at first may crash sooner or 
later. Some applications may crash X itself or hang the GPU. You should 
be prepared to face issues, and be able to recover from them yourself.'

Yup, this is what we should recommend to other users. Ric
