I've been using ubuntu for a while now and had a bit of a problem a while back with my graphics card and got to messing around with drivers.
Even though I'va had experience (nasty ones) with drivers, I'm still not sure.
What are the differences between the binary and source drivers. Now that question is not as stupid as it reads. I'm aware that binary are..well.. binary and source are compiled scripts you run yourself.
My question is moreso, what grounds would you choose one over the other?
Why is a binary driver more stable and source considered faster?
Just on that note. When I say source drivers, I don't mean nouveau. I mean the drivers you download manually from nvidia and run the scripts yourself.
