The problem that statement causes is that put simply the Free video drivers are not up too much in reality i dont got a choice but use the non-free binary drivers for my GeForce FX5500 as the free one is very limited . I know certain people will get their panties in a bunch over that sort of statement but to coin a phrase common in the IT world Schit Happens (and yes i do know thanks very much ) and didely squatt as well .

Welcome to the world of Microsoft. It's all too easy to blame the OS for grief caused by 3rd-party buggy drivers (or user-space apps).
Of course, Microsoft tends to internalize this problem and fix problems themselves (according to this Raymond Chen blog post from several years ago about unsavory programming practices at a game software company).
