Who is "most freebsd users"? I agree that there are more important
things to worry about than nvidia/amd64 support, but: if you want to buy
a computer these days and want to use it as a desktop/workstation with
our favourite operating system, you have a serious problem to find a
graphics card that is both useable and buyable.
