    Some time back, Nvidia seemded to be a lot more stable.

    It's still better than others like ATI though...

    What problems have you had with the latest Nvidia drivers? What exactly do you mean by "stable"?

    Nvidia is known to make some of the best drivers for any hardware product. I've never had any problems with its drivers in Windows or Linux, just increased performance.

    Same here, that's why I was curious to hear what trouble jens had noticed.

    To compare them(versions) I'll use Wolfenstein ET.
    With on of the older versions, it(OpenGL) just never crashed. Using the latest drivers it does(even though they support more cards).
    I even installed an older version to check this(and still use it on some systems).

    Hmm. Interesting. Can't say that's ever happened to me, but I'll sure try and get it to crash.

    Same here. I've never experienced any stabiltiy issues ieither.

    As for this topic I started (about the version numbers) it way done in a tounge-in-cheek kind of way. I didnt think anyone would get the 'hump' because of it.

    Don't get me wrong, I prefere Nvidia above anything else.
    I just have this feeling they're becomming less good on the software spectrum (and do believe me, I'm not the only one)
