Name one such limitation because in 25+ years of using FreeBSD and linux
emulation I have never found a serious difference between what can be done
in emulation vs. what can be done on an actual linux host (except for cases
where the program in question wanted a newer kernel then the one being
emulated but since CUDA has been around for a while now this is a
non-issue).   I even found a few workarounds posted on the net on how to
get the nVidia driver to support CUDA natively (none of them official but
they still exist).   So I will ask again if it can be made to work in any
way at all (even if a told hack) then it is incorrect to say CUDA is not
possible with nVidia on FreeBSD (yes very hard but not impossible).
