56314969 story Linus Torvalds Gives 'Thumbs Up' To Nvidia For Nouveau Contributions 169 Posted by Unknown Lamer on Monday February 03, 2014 @08:39PM from the romulans-approaching-the-neutral-zone dept. sfcrazy writes "Linus Torvalds has had some harsh words for Nvidia in the past. Their failure to work constructively with the Linux community is especially disappointing in light of the company's large presence in the Android market. That said, where there is life, there is change, and that is just what happened yesterday. Torvalds publicly gave a thumbs-up to Nvidia for contributing basic support for the recently released Nvidia K1 processor to Nouveau; something that was totally unexpected but received with open arms. 'Hey, this time I'm raising a thumb for nvidia. Good times,' said Linus."
