The real solution

The real solution is to make a push for Free Software 3D drivers. Attempting to tear apart the GPL from the inside of the community, or illegally (and immorally) distributing proprietary drivers and basing a Free desktop around that isn't the right solution.
GNU/Linux didn't get to where it is now by compromising the philosophy every time it was tempting to do so. If you feel tempted, be part of the solution: either help create Free Software 3D drivers, or start doing Free Software 3D driver advocacy. Also, refuse to buy hardware there are no Free Software drivers for. The FSF recommends the Intel GMA chipsets as the current 'not actively hostile to Free Software' 3D choice. They're slower, but if that matters to you more than freedom, you're part of the wrong community.
