3D just works, without proprietary drivers, with:
* Intel integrated chipsets (except the GMA500, which is part of "Poulsbo")
* ATI Radeons <= r5xx (that's <= X1950)

So there's plenty of choice there, no excuses.

That's what we do. Unfortunately, users usually try to argue about it and
complain about us closing the bug rather than doing what they need to do to
get their bug actually fixed.
