You mention gnome shell but not nouveau, how do you enable the missing
3d support for Nouveau? And does it only work for a subset of
hardware? I'd be interested to try it. Lately I just get:

Accelerated 3D graphics is not available
Desktop effects require hardware 3D support.

I have switched between nvidia and nouveau in testing F14, I prefer
gnome shell but using it can lead to fragility (eg. install nvidia,
configure gnome shell, update;  temporarily disabling nvidia -> broken
desktop)
