The ONLY reason I bought an nvidia card was that I wanted a card to unload the cpu and ram, and my experience up to that point with non-nvidia cards was all negative. I don't need a proprietary driver for any of these. As far as I can tell google-earth doesn't either, almost all the flight-simulation is just number crunching and doesn't even come close to a gamer's needs, I really don't know why they cannot run it with just nouveau. All in all, there being many who might want the proprietary driver from time to time, maybe for a good tank-battle, I say LET'EM HAVE IT.. by way of a login-switch of course, like that for any DE. To close, still from a brain-stem level user's point of view, I haven't got the faintest clue why I should want wayland at all. What does it give me that I both need but X doesn't offer? Does it work better with _any_ init system than X?
