Comment It's completely different in Linux (Score 1) 236

It is interesting to see this is complete opposite of what we have on Linux. Here, vendor drivers are almost universally shitty. If they work at all, vendors tend to ship drivers compiled for ancient and/or specific kernels.
On Linux, if you have driver in kernel, you almost always want it instead of vendor provided one. nVidia GPU driver may be the only exception.
