This is assuming NICs represent a major driver problem in Vista/7. They don't. Virtually all NICs (I'm willing to say 99%) will WORK (that is FUNCTION) "out of the box" with Windows 7. There are a number of generic fallback drivers. There might be some issues, like jumbo frame support on gigabit cards, and some settings you can't tweak, but they will almost always work. This has been the case since Windows 98.

Find another straw man.

I take it you've never had a machine with an onboard nvidia NIC. No, they do not work out of the box.
