The video card maker will no longer support Linux.

While more and more companies, even Microsoft, are moving to embrace open source, NVIDIA is walking away for it.

On Friday, the video card manufacturer announced that it will no longer support Linux.

BenchmarkReviews.com reported, "NVIDIA has decided to deprecate this open-source driver of theirs. No, NVIDIA is not working on a new driver. No, NVIDIA is not going to support the Nouveau project. Instead, NVIDIA now just recommends its users use the X.Org VESA driver to get to NVIDIA.com when installing Linux so they can install their proprietary driver."
