IMO if you don't see issues with the Windows driver you have not looked well enough. E.g. AFAICT almost all Direct3D 1 games are broken, since for some reason both ATI and NVidia botched their implementation of the function that clears the Z-Buffer. Just using the equivalent Direct3D 7 function fixes it, see e.g. here: http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=34842
I could complain and make jokes how NVidia can't fix such a simple thing, too (and yes, I am really sure that at least a work-around would be simple) - I just don't because I could fix it my way myself and I know that there are always too many issues to have time to fix them all.
