So what happens now?
So what happens if say an iMac 2009 (as an example) with Nvidia 9400GM Graphics/(Bootcamp) using either Nvidia 340.108 (Linux) or Nvidia 342.01 Windows drivers which are no longer supported but still work fine, are these machines going to the price paid by consumers for this fcuk up by Nvidia? More landfill crud, where end users are the innocent party in this.
All seems very convenient, to sell a shitload of tech, off the back of this, for both MS and Nvidia.
To MS/Nvidia, you better sort this out for all legacy drivers, not just current ones, anything else is unacceptable. Nvidia make 340.108 compatible with Linux 5.15 kernel while you're at it.
And just to make the point regarding Windows 11, a TPM module and secure boot, doesn't save anyone from this type of malware where there is a compromised certificate. Plenty have made that point very vocal in the last few months.
Windows, the utter trash - just keeps on giving.
