How is the Nvidia support on NetBSD nowadays?

I have my NetBSD 2.0_beta desktop all up running nicely with the nv driver. It's been solid and I don't have any complaints. I've heard some people have had mixed results using the FreeBSD nvidia drivers.

NetBSD really doesn't do much with 3d anyway. Most of the OpenGL/Mesa apps are done in software mode anyway. Hopefully this will improve at some point. I'm really happy with NetBSD for a desktop system and it makes a really solid server too. I have a second box with fbsd/windows for gaming and a dreamcast so the 3d thing doesn't bother me. You might feel differently about it.
