At the moment, in general, GNU/Linux supports more hardware than M$Win.
A few hardware manufacturers (number rapidly decreasing) still refuse to publish the specs on their hardware. Their problem. They will go the way of the Dodo.
The problem with 3D-hardware is IMHO one of this kind. Perhaps if some competition to the two big players showed? Could be kinda fun, if some small manufacturer created a open-source 3D card.
Even these two seems to be slowly catching on. At least they now do some feeble support. I guess it will intensify:
