THOSE FOLKS RUNNING Ubuntu or Debian flavours of Linux might be happy to know that there's a new programme available to automate the process of installing Nvidia and ATI drivers.
Envy (from the Italian for the word, 'invidia', natch) might not be brand spanking new but it's certainly the first we've heard of it. Rather than forcing newbie Ubuntu users to grapple with direct downloads and command line installation, Envy automagically detects the graphics hardware in your system, fetches the correct driver from the net and installs it - seamlessly.
It is also designed to make multi-monitor configuration a cinch, something that neither graphics company has really been able to nail so far.
Like so many of the greatest programmes in the world, Envy is written in Python. Is there anything that language can't do?
We've had no luck so you don't have to...
Oh Microsoft... not again...
Hmmm... says Microsoft
No way, Norway
