Obviously somebody has missed that Beryl/Compiz can't be default on ANY distro
(and in fact isn't default on any distro I know of), simply because it
requires a certain level of system upgrading that can't just be ASSUMED to be
there.  My desktop can run Beryl, but my laptop can't, so I'd have a pretty
hard time using a distro that used Beryl by default...

There should be atleast an option during first desktop boot or in live
cd install saying something like this: "Would you like to test 3D
deskop acceleration? We don't guarantee it works so try at your own
risk." Done. And if it fails in 30 seconds revert back to plain X.
