Or maybe you could have just fixed whatever is broken in your setup?

It must be obvious that such problems are not normal, or nobody would be able to use that hardware.
Are you sure you weren't using the nv driver?

I am sure.

Both problems were acknowledged and conscious decisions by the developers.
For both the answer was: buy a new graphics card from the 8xxx series.
There the drivers do accelerate video and anti aliased fonts.

Well I did not. I bought hardware (Radeon HD 4870) that at least has some
usable support by free drivers which in both regards surpass both NVidia's
and AMD's proprietary offers.
