Nvidia has moved to stop its customers giving away or selling bundled games, adding technological measures to back up its existing terms and conditions forbidding such activity.
This will cause a stink. :)

Personally, I wouldn't buy a "bundle" unless either I wanted those titles (unlikely), or I could swap or trade those titles I didn't want. They are not "free", after all.

I would rather have a discount than a code for a game I don't want.

So, I assume we're referring to non-libre games then? :roll:

Yeah, I don't think I could go back to using proprietary software.
Please be polite and remember to mark your fixed problem [SOLVED].

Presently running Linux Mint Cinnamon 19.3.

Know when what you're doing is trying to fit a square peg in a round hole, and STOP.

Still looking for a new job.
