Yes this is why I use alphaOS as well, however since it is portable i think you should take into consideration the vast amount of hardware that is not x86-64. What use of a portable system if you cannot use it amongst all common machines...

Conflict between xorg-server-1.11 and nVidia legacy drivers
This is the worst example you could possibly find. It directly goes against what you say.
Nvidia dropped support for old cards and proprietary legacy driver is no longer compatible with current xorg. AMD/ATI has done the exact same and no longer support my HD4850 anymore.
Oh my; What possible solution could there be? Use the free drivers. The hardware is still supported, it was not depreciated in the kernel!
Even cards as old as Riva TNT have 3D support in nouveau.
