I'd like to stress here before anyone gets the idea that Ubuntu made the
decision to drop Geforce4 MX, that the problem lies with nVidia, their binary
drivers, and them not releasing updates for their binary driver, leading to it
being incompatible with the new X server that Ubuntu uses. I believe this
happens almost every cycle with the -96 legacy drivers.

I'm not about to post in that thread, because it has degenerated into a flame
war of whether or not hardware/software vendors should support old hardware.
Anyone who has enough time to deal with that thread, please feel free to do so.

P.S. I also use the graphic card mentioned.

Kind regards,
Chow Loong Jin
