Then you should at least consider using nouveau all of the time now.
A lot of 3d games don't work with it yet, but normal desktop stuff

I expect if you need good 3d for Nouveau, that will probably be another
year or two.

One way is to back up your data and reinstall Fedora. That's simple to
explain and reliable. It's an annoying amount of work, but it might have
taken less of your time as things turned out.
