Nouveau Alternatives

    Nouveau is described as ': Accelerated Open Source driver for nVidia cards
    The nouveau project aims to build high-quality, free/libre software drivers for nVidia cards'. There are four alternatives to Nouveau for a variety of platforms, including Linux, Mac, VMware vSphere Hypervisor, Windows and Windows Server 2012. The best alternative is Kazan, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Nouveau are NVIDIA vGPU (Freemium), AMD MxGPU (Free, Open Source) and Virgil 3D GPU project (Free, Open Source).
