Lee wasn't suggesting you drop your use of nvidia.... he was 
suggesting that if you want proprietary video drivers, and 
you're dissatisfied with your machine's realtime performance, 
you're either going to have to lobby nvidia (or ati) to make 
their stuff work with realtime kernels, since they have access 
to their code and the kernel guys don't, or you're going to have 
to suck it up.  

I remember having to turn down my graphics acceleration settings 
to reduce xruns in my distant Windows past, so it's not like the 
situation is unique to free software.
