Microsoft Infoworld takes a look at Hyper-V, Microsoft's hypervisor-based virtualization system, and finds: "In a nutshell, one of Hyper-V's advertised strengths -- the host partition's ability to work with generic Windows device drivers -- is also its greatest weakness. That's because the quality level of Windows device drivers, especially those from third-party developers, is notoriously inconsistent."

I guess that's a "your mileage may vary" type situation. I personally have only had video instability from nVidia drivers, forceware caused more programs to crash than catalyst ever did. I've had a bunch of ati cards, from a rage 64 up to my current hd3870, and have never had any problems with any version of windows. That's not to say that I haven't had windows driver issues, most recently that I couldn't upgrade Vista to SP1 because of my sound driver, but such is life I guess.
