How could proprietary graphics drivers be more up-to-date by default on Ubuntu (without needing to add a PPA - could they get a special Stable Release Update procedure or be put into Ubuntu Backports with Backports being made more discoverable) and much more easy to find (obviously snaps are the ideal way of having properly up-to-date software on Ubuntu but perhaps that’s not possible for graphics drivers)? What’s the package for the GNOME first-run screen on Ubuntu called? Could a link to installing the proprietary graphics drivers be included on that?
Obviously as Ubuntu we want to promote free (libre) software (and GNU/FSF are keen for us to do this) but proprietary graphics drivers perform orders of magnitude better than open-source graphics drivers, so could we make them much more discoverable so that gamers who switch to Ubuntu are not possibly immediately disillusioned by Ubuntu because the proprietary graphics drivers are not very discoverable?
I’m sure I saw a response from @willcooke to one of Jason’s Tweets before but I don’t see a reply from him to this one? Not that he has to reply to all of them but thought he said something to do with this, maybe not…
Edit: I found Will’s Tweet sorry! Perhaps updates/progress could go here? Or is it on the Ubuntu Desktop team Trello? https://twitter.com/8none1/status/1095419108521361408
