So when you said it supported NVIDIA right out of the box, it's not true because their drivers are not included into the free edition, the same for most of the wifi wrapper around ndiswrapper

Not sure about the version you used, but in my system the free Mandriva One 2007 Spring give me out of box NVIDIA 3d support and my ralink wireless card was detected using the rt61 module.

There is a version of Spring without any proprietary or non free code, maybe you are somehow making a mistake?
