The DMCA allows for triple damages. It may not seem so but they probably got off relatively easy by settling. I imagine very big numbers were being tossed around and it's very scary. I know because I was sued under the DMCA a few decades ago and thank my lucky stars I didn't suffer the same fate as Gary Bowser.

Quoting: ZlopezI'm surprised to see Jim Whitehurst as Interim CEO for Unity. I thought that he currently has some top management function in IBM after being CEO of Red Hat.

I'm sorry they don't consider session management a show stopper. IMHO its quite a big regression.

NVIDIA driver 545.29.02 out for Linux plus other releases due to security issues

Looks like there is a problem with the new driver launching CS2 under Wayland and/or gamescope:

A fix was done but landed after the release was cut.

Just flipping through their forum shows quite a lot of people having a hard time with Wayland still.

NVIDIA Beta driver 545.23.06 released for Linux, plenty of new features

Quoting: sniper_nine 535.43.13 vulkan beta drivers work fine with 3090ti gpu. Not sure about the normal beta branch drivers though I am thinking the the fix needed for starfield didn't make in the normal beta branch drivers. I couldn't get any of the dlss mods to work. So for me fps are like 24-40 mostly around 30-35 though. But that is at 4k with the graphics maxed out. I haven't done much testing though. I spent some time trying to get the dlss mods to work but couldn't seem to get them working yet.

DLSS 3 requires a RTX-40 series card AFAIK.

With the last stable release, 535.113.01, eglinfo core-dumped on me on Fedora 37. It broke ksysstats (used by plasma-systemmonitor) so I backed down to 535.104.05.

I can endorse Jim Whitehurst. He was an amazing CEO at Red Hat.

I could never get past the authentication running it in wine. I don't know if was SAML, OpenID or something else, but it was redirecting browser-based auth the simply blew up inside of wine.

Companies asking "do we really want to do this?" when it comes to being bought? Absolutely yes. Those in charge walk away with a ton of money and the rest, well, that's up to them. I think even well-meaning owners fall into this trap. When they are no longer in charge, they are no longer in charge and can't protect their former staff.
