It doesn't mean that: I don't know if Nvidia builds any drivers for
NetBSD (didn't notice any when searching for the Linux ones).

I should have said, "On the graphics side" but I was specifically
looking for a laptop card driver, and thus my incorrect phrasing came.
(The end result with my laptop and Nvidia: the driver was there, for
both Linux and FreeBSD).

Essentially, one needs to keep the video card driver availability in
mind when selecting the OS.
