WHAT?! NVIDIA driver for BSD? Is it free (as in speech)? Does it do 3D accel? Any chance of a NetBSD port? Are you REing the card?

Sorry about all these questions. I purchased a Radeon card for the primary reason of having free, open source Linux drivers available (which there weren't at the time I bought it). Progress on the Radeon drivers has been slow in most areas, and in some is actually losing ground (X 4.0.3 tends to freeze after some time). If NVIDIA has open source drivers, officially sanctioned or no, I may end up switching brands. :^) I run NetBSD as well as Linux (because FreeBSD doesn't want to cooperate with my l33t triple-boot system).

Of course, I could be totally stupid and way off base here, in which case you may ignore me utterly.
