I find it hard to come up with a course of action that would improve NVIDIA's image among kernel maintainers without giving them what they need. He wants people to want to work with NVIDIA stuff which would obviously require both giving the maintainers what they need and doing stuff they they don't necessarily need but wouldn't mind at all.

Asking this question he doesn't just get suggestions of how to make it easier to run NVIDIA hardware on desktop Linux, but also on what about working with NVIDIA irritates the maintainers; fixing those means more maintainers *using* NVIDIA (and so testing it) if not specifically fixing it.

I've heard good things about Fedora and OpenSUSE's packaging of KDE, but my fondness for dpkg means I've not yet given them the chance.

Debian's seems less bonkers than Ubuntu's, but I'm not a KDE user so I don't know how much of that bonkers is KDE and how much is Debian's packaging of it.
