Say what? AFAIK Mythdora uses (or at least can use, it's an installation
option) the proprietary binary blob drivers from nVidia. The
installation even ask you if you need the "legacy" or the current drivers.

OpenGL works fine on my Mythdora system, not likely if it were using the
generic "nv" drivers.

Mythdora is FC based, so there should be no difference in video
performance between it and an FC installation.
