Also, since you pretend to "know" anything about me before labeling me =
and my experiences inside your narrative, I worked on: Sniffer tools at =
Network General; mac addressing & hypercube technology at Intel;  =
testing Lexmark printers; EDA software at Mentor Graphics, Cypress =
Semiconductor, and Analogy; mainframe-terminals, graphics workstations =
printers, and oscilloscopes at Tektronix.
I worked on many operating systems: Apple's System7, MacOS9, MacOSX, =
macOS; GNU/Linux Debian, Ubuntu; Tektronix's UTek; Sun Microsystem's =
SunOS & Solaris; Hewlett-Packard's HP-UX; Digital Equipment =
Corporation's VAX/VMS & Ultrix; IBM's MVS, TSO, OS/2, & AIX; Microsoft's =
3, 95, 98, 98Workgroups, NT, 2000,=20
XP, 7, 10.
I worked around many people who dwarfed my knowledge and skills, but let =
me learn from those failings. Envy & denial of failure were options if I =
wanted to remain "correctly ignorant".

So, I suggest that you lose the political correctness w/r/t facts, =
because they still exist and it only makes your "emperor's clothes" =
disappear faster.
If I color history, it's because the rainbow of truth is not black =
and/or white.
The infinity of numbers lays between 0 and 1 so binary views, by =
science, are limited and limiting conveniences that are extremely-narrow =
views of an analog, nonlinear, asynchronous universe to appease our =
human-centric views of ourselves as Red Guards v2 correcting anyone who =
does not choose [only] from the set of {0,1}.
We're here to hear and to share , and w/o all the other numbers =
perceived by all the "blind men" (Cf, the "blind men and the elephant"), =
then no elephant ( of "bug") can truly be understood, let alone =
[per-/con-]ceived.
We all have opinions and we all have/are moments of "T"ruth, a.k.a. =
sharing our "t"ruths.

If you do not comprehend mine don't attempt to assassinate me.
Dig deeper.
Attacks only show a cowardly ignorance hiding in dogma.
I'm sure that you're more than that. Share that please.
It's a bit boring hearing slanders against reasoned "truth" over and =
over.
It tends to expose fetish and a refusal to listen or share about the =
question asked, rather swinging that off into a narrative that only =
offers engagement 'off topic' as its replacement for logic, passion, =
knowledge, and care.
Do you have anything to share about across-platforms NVIDIA issues, or =
merely tepid, paltry NPCynia (as in NPC + cynicISM)
I mentioned NVIDIA's REAL WORLD affiliations because they matter in =
determining if there is intent in the issues, as when Microsoft used to =
code in backdoors to every released OS because their income model =
included selling whatever info they could steal from the users of their =
OS; they essentially invented spyware.
Fact, not conspiracy.
Relevant whether you divert off into character assassination and lists =
of unverifiable investigations, or not..
Because intent exposes content, an integral part of the logic of "bugs", =
yours also exposes your 'reason' for being on this list.
If you mdid not care to assist me, then shut up. "Turn the channel". Go =
read. Do something else. Why avoid NVIDIA issues just to assault my =
reasonable questions about that company and the bugs they do not fix, =
expecting OSs to adapt around them instead. Why? is a reasonable =
question if the issues persist, and even why they existed in the first =
place.

Why are bugs there is a credible a question as is where are they.
Who do they affect is as credible as what do they effect.
I was in QA. Before that was nixed by the feigned "high tech bubble" =
burst, that wiped out competition to the main players, quality mattered.
Now, we have to solve what would have stopped releases before.
We did refuse managers getting their "beat the deadline" bonuses because =
the quality did not meet the signed-off agreements re: severity and =
priority levels still existing in the code. Lowering the bar is not a =
sign of increased intelligence, rather it indicates a fear of failure, =
or argument, of paradox... a fear of success, of quality, of merit. So, =
addressing bugs means more than scissoring them off a list, hitting a =
delete button, shaking your head and crying, or calling someone names =
because having a bug in your code hurts your feelings.
Quality is quality. Testing reveals issues. Uncensored science is a =
tool. People's views and motives are in their bugs and lowered =
expectations, or in their willingness to listen to others and to the =
expanded reality of "bugs". Nuff said.=20

Honestly, you pissed me off and intended to, and to all of the rest of =
you, I apologize for reacting to tick-like assaults.=20
i do not apologize for the tick. Ticking is what a tick does. next time =
I will call on one of our friendly visiting opposums for help (they can =
kill 54,000 ticks per week).

for better,
frank
