A point:  If I had not posted that particular quibble, you (in
combination with Chander Kent) would probably have mislead Darlene into
thinking the proprietary Nvidia driver is _necessary_ for that laptop,
which I'd wager is not the case at all.  I'm betting that it's provided
only for 3D functionality and possibly some other enhanced video
functions not essential to regular X11 functionality.

Since my aim is to give people the information they are likely to find
most useful, I quibbled.  Deal.
