    will the nvidia driver install today?

    And how is it working out now for use?
    I like to upgrade once a release hits beta.
    But I need the nvidia driver to work.

    I am on 331.38 from xorg-edgers and 12.04
    nvidia-current from additional drivers.

    I always run a vanilla install for testing.

    I installed xorg-edgers ppa for 331 driver.
    A few new things I had to learn with multiple monitors, you must use display properties as nvidia-settings dont apply.

    So far it feels good this 14.04
