ZzZzz.. oh please... gimme a break. This is simple acceleration for autohinting, not even a 3D problem. This is not the result of a "bad BIOS". I also did not "come to Linux", but actually, "came to Windows".
I invite you to find some actual proof of this rubbish you're claiming. Find a report of a "bad BIOS" issue that the Windows driver fixed and Linux driver didn't. I think you're talking out of your ass, most likely. Oh, I also was not aware that a GPU is the same thing as a BIOS.
The real reason you don't hear whining from Windows users is because NVIDIA is obviously more devoted to their Windows drivers (and I'm not complaining, it makes sense to me and I understand why). You also don't hear whining over things like Composite, because NT's "composite"-like functionality isn't buggy
