Not sure what this is in reference to exactly. Nvidia supply Linux drivers for their cards. There's probably more (really) high-end GPUs in Linux boxes than Windows these days (super computers, machine learning, crypto mining, etc).

It certainly has! These days Nvidia and their hardware are driving forward computational science as well as worrying about frame rates for Windows gamers. That stuff is almost exclusively done on Linux. I work in a university and I'd hazard a guess that we have > 1000 NVidia cards across the campus in clusters, servers and desktops all running various flavours of Linux Smile

I've no idea what happened to my reply. I only asked "Are you sure they're not using the unsupported (and not fully functional) Nouveau drivers?"

for some reason your actual reply didnt make ii into the body. this happens occasionally and often gets removed b/c it just looks like big block quote and nothing else

On a side note, more related to the thread, it's probably almost time we start a PineTab Software Releases wiki page.

When you're removing the quote levels, are you removing them in the rich or plain text editor?

It seems to happen any time I delete a quoted quote.

Rich.  I didn't know plain text was an option.  Confused

Try switching to plain text mode (last button on the toolbar), at least before posting.

Rich text looks buggy - when I edit quoted text (remove nested quotes, etc) - then quoted text becomes bold, like nickname. Switching to plain text and back fixes it - hence, plain text is better Smile

Regardless of the display driver (some will use NVidia, some will use Nouveau) they are all using this:
