I have no problem with you or anyone else running nouveau. None at all.

I do have a problem with someone saying 'it's time for everyone to
give up nvidia-drivers' without demonstrating they know the full
impact of what they are suggesting. Had Cheng Renquan suggest 'Maybe
people who don't need anything other than basic X capabilities should
consider running nouveau' I wouldn't have even chimed in.

And thanks for running boinc. It's good of you and good for you.

Cheers,
Mark
