I can't believe I'm the first to point this out, but working, stable 3D 
support isn't all about bling.  Just try to run something like 
Pro/Engineer (a high-end, professional CAD/CAM package) or AVS Express 
(for scientific visualization) on a non-accelerated system.  It's 
*painful*.  More and more high end packages like those are being ported to 
Linux.  But corporations aren't going to migrate their users' desktops to 
Linux if they can't run the apps with decent performance and stability. 
IMO, *that's* why 3D is important.
