What video graphic card would use Ubuntu's standard driver (to work well)?

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I just installed Ubuntu 12.04. Anything seemed well until I installed the Nvidia driver. Then a crash happened. This situation is untenable. It seems I cannot trust Nvidia, and it seems that I cannot rely on Ubuntu gurus to test 3rd party drivers. So, apparently some video card manufacturers do not care enough about the Linux market to test their drivers, or are there too many 3rd party video cards so that Ubuntu folks do not test any 3rd party video drivers? Hence the question: What video graphic card would permit me to use Ubuntu's standard driver so that I do not have to rely on Nvidia (HowTos)
