However, I am not going to hold my breath.

I've held mine since 1996 with a Slackware install from floppy disks. I worked for RedHat from 1999 to 2000 during the IPO era. Nothing but Linux evere since. However I cannot bear the pain any longer. I just want to watch a 3D movie on DVD. I sunk a small fortune into nVidia cards and 3D glasses hardware and Acer hot-rod monitors, with Gsync and 3D Vision blazened on the front. None of this works and hasn't for several tears, acording to my google madness hunt.

Long story short, I bought a Win 10 install package. God heal my darkened soul. But, I'm going to use my computer to do things that here-to-for has been denied me! Our community has pissed on nVidia's shoes once too often. So, we're ignored on the 3D front. And wine doesn't cut it playing high-end game titles.

My computer shits lightening and farts thunder, so it's about time I woke up and used the damn thing for something more than Hunt-The-Wumpus. I Am going to watch a 3D movie with the shutter specs. I bought the DVD for $10 and $500 for better hardware.Heckuva note. Ric
