No it isn't.

It looks absolutely awful on anything that actually moves.

That's 10 stutters per second.

What makes people think this won't be visible, when we demand at least 24fps for film, and are used to 50 images (deinterlaced) from video?

Not sure what nVidia GPU you use, but I have an AMD passively cooled one that does excellent vector adaptive deinterlacing of HD. But it doesn't do 50 -> 60 Hz conversion, because I have told it to output 50Hz to the TV. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't do a good job though (perhaps being helped botching things up by Windows).
