That said, can we stop with the tinfoil? It isn't helping anyone's argument, and is the exact reason why nothing ever gets done about any of these "outrages". No one with two neurons to rub together can take the conspiracy nonsense seriously, and the second you start spouting that nonsense, people dismiss the entire issue along with your assasinine reasoning, even if the issue itself is very real.Nvidia's motives here are obvious. It is to Nvidia's advantage if everyone is using the same driver version. Not for any nefarious purposes, not to steal your private data or to sell your emails, but simply to keep their development and support streamlined and cost effective. They don't care about the proverbial handful of guys who are getting screwed due to whatever complication, they care that the literal rest of the world is running on the same version and is experiencing the same bugs and is reporting said bugs automatically through the same automated system. That is literally all there is to it.
If you don't like that Nvidia is doing this at YOUR expense (and you shouldn't), talk about THAT issue, not some nut job rant about Nvidia's secret ties with the movement to revive Nazi Germany (and that goes for Microsoft, Google, and everyone else for that matter).
I don't buy that. If that were their goal they would be better off aligning their web releases with their GFE releases and limiting it to WHQL releases. There is no advantage to Nvidia to have some users on quarterly releases if their end goal is simply to have everyone on the same driver.
And there will always be people running the version of the driver that's best for the game they're currently playing rather than the latest. This would only work for them if they force
driver updates through GFE, which I haven't heard anything about (yet).Edited by Somasonic - 10/18/15 at 4:13pm
