    Most of it is gibberish to me.
    they didn't list any game fixes either.
    I may try it in Mint if its available.
    LinSteam requires that our drivers and OS are always up to date

    I tried both Mint update and my favorite update method:

    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-settings
    nvidia-settings

    Both gave me 313.09

    So...not quite yet... will be checking regular like...":O}

    Years ago I got into trouble adopting early drivers...but I haven't had any trouble with new drivers as of late.

    But yeah, I'm almost always up for new drivers and it WILL catch up with me one day. ":O}
