NVIDIA to Provide Support for Old Video Cards on Linux Until 2017

NVIDIA has already made its plans clear about the legacy drivers, but now the company decided that it’s time to explain a little better what it is going to do regarding the support for old video cards in UNIX systems.

NVIDIA provides multiple driver branches for different categories of users and graphics cards. Each driver is designed to fill a particular niche and they are separated in a few clear categories: Long Lived Branch, Short Lived Branch, and Legacy.
