Also they really need to support old graphic cards, not everyone want to use
compiz, and many use linux to revive old HW instead of poluting garbage dumps
around in the world with it. Tell me why compiz can't run on 8Mb or 16Mb
cards, when 3D on these cards can be achived in windows. The G200 has a 250Mhz
ramdac. nVidia vanta is a great card that runs 3D games(not the new ones)
smooth in windows, but in ubuntu it is not even recognize but set up as a
noname vesa card. PCLinuxOs finds both cards without a probleme.
Running 3D isn't equal with compiz, compiz is an add on for your desktop environment which utilizes 3D in the same way as microsoft Aero, which also won't work on older graphics card, no matter if they do support 3D or not.
Ubuntu has it's reasons why detect older cards as vesa (most likely for they don't want to mess too much with the old drivers which may not work well with newer kernels and Ubuntu just adds extra eye-candy to Debian).
I asked in this NG, because I'm new at CAD/CAM and CNC and thought I could run
into someone here that might have a clue to one distro where this kind of SW
would run smoothly.
If it runs smoothly on one distribution, you can always make it run as smoothly on another.
