The same experiment has been done for 100 years, and consistently reproduces the same results. Take a sealed, transparent tank of air. Shine sunlight on it. Take the temperature. Increase the percentage of CO2 in the tank. Shine sunlight. Take the temperature. The CO2-richer air has a higher temperature.

Been running openSUSE as my primary OS for about 12 years.

Also been running it in a VM for 6 or 7 years. You are using VirtualBox? Shared folders/shared clipboard are pretty awesome.

(Why are you "stuck" with Win 8.1 on the host, BTW?)

In any case, let me know if you run into any issues. Glad to help if I can.

In theory it's possible to use the Nvidia driver on an Optimus laptop using something called bumblebee. I seem to recall there's a successor project to that now. In either case, all the detailed info I've been able to find online about it seems to be geared towards *disabling* the Nvidia card, which seems to me to be a big "WTF?".

Your experience is the opposite of mine, then, which is that the *only* safe way to run Nouveau on a machine with an Nvidia card is to add nomodeset or acpi=OFF to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT, or get used to random lockups. I've had this issue on 3 different machines (2 desktops and 1 laptop).
