I’d like to use cuda 9.1 on my home pc to “play with” tensorflow+gpu - which could be described as non-commerical development ?
Reading the license both agreeing I can’t see that this is allowed, except possibly for a limited time ?
So section 1.1.1 applies and sections 1.1.2, (3) - which means the license only lasts 1 year ?
