Nvidia works on new driver user interface

The previous sucks and Nvidia knows it

WE KNOW that Nvidia's driver team was criticised for its last driver user interface as it's probably the most illogical peace of system software. It remembers some steps you do and makes some stuff very difficult to find. Well this will change, thanks god.

Nvidia is working hard to fix this mistake. The biggest complaint we had with the driver in the lab was that it forces German language on German Windows even when we wanted an English one, and it has something called "recent tasks".

This is probably the biggest problem of this driver as it remembers the options you use frequently and it summons them and lists them when you don't want them. It also hides some other options and makes them harder to find. We avoided this control panel as much as we could but the new one will change the face of the driver.

So a new user interface is in the works. The driver will look the same under XP and Vista - at least that is the plan. µ
