So Radeon 9250 cards that run Compiz perfectly are now garbage pail
kids?  I thought we in the free/open camp liked to brag about not
needing the fastest newest hardware.  I picked the 9250 at the time I
built out a set of workstations a few years back not because it was fast
but because it was one of the few cards at the time that was rock solid
with the Free X drivers and I didn't want to play the games with the
closed drivers.  Good thing I hadn't planned on deploying GNOME3 anyway.

Jeeze people, just how much 3d grunt do you really need for a fricking
desktop?  Optional bells and whistles?  Yea if you got it why not flaunt
it but can we keep the base requirements minimal?
