Umm, DirectX is generally better because someone actually tests the drivers and bundles them up in an easy to install way. Microsoft doesn't write them, that would be silly. If someone got all the OpenGL drivers into an easily installable package, tested every driver thoroughly (for backward compatability if nothing else) and proactively encouraged the vendors to fix bugs, the support would be steller.
I know that OpenGL support improved markedly when quake needed it, can't say I've actually used Windows much since then so I'm not sure what happened since.
