Yup. Sure have. Now, I might have described it in more technical terms, such
as API/ABI changes, or X crashing, but the net effect is the same: I have had
the drivers for the video card fail, resulting in poor performance and/or a
fallback to VESA or VGA on me.

Sure is. I mean, he doesn't even know the same jargon you do, after he has
been using Linux for six whole days! I mean, how stupid could you possibly
be — everyone knows those terms!
 ...ah, those were the days. Good old Tseng Labs, how much nicer you were
to hate when your awful hardware failed than the modern vendors.
