I didn't try it but if you use the "source" drivers from nvidia it should work(Yes linux is supported by nvidia !) . If this fail then you could install a stock kernel from www.kernel.org
and install the drivers after that ...
Lindows is NOT a new os , they use as a base
Debian so you can use the debian free programms without paying anything : http://www.extremetech.com/article2/...,746189,00.asp
IMHO you better use other good and trusted distro , this is the list : Redhat, mandrake,gentoo,slackware,debian ...
If you want a new look (windows like ) watch this http://www.xpde.com/modules.php?name=Screenshots
