geek writes: nVidia software engineer Aaron Plattner divulged his work on improved Optimus support to a developer listserv. Seemingly in answer to criticism by Linus Torvalds regarding the bad relations nVidia has with the kernel developers. Plattner has created a working proof of concept with a driver. Does this improve the relationship nVidia has with Linux developers? That remains to be seen but it's definitely a step in the right direction.
"No, no, I don't mind being called the smartest man in the world. I just wish
it wasn't this one."
