I fear you are right about the future, but I find all this emphasis on 3D pretty annoying, a waste of resources. Who cares about 3D? Gamers and those working on CAD. For me and (gazing around) everyone in the big open-plan office around me, good 2D acceleration with maybe some live video support thrown in (for those internal corporate clips featuring flying logos and the talking head of some boss) is all that is required. Its just text and pictures. Stuff that graphics cards circa 1999 already did pretty well...
Compiz and similar? Seriously, what are they for? I tried, for all of 5 minutes, felt nauseated and went back to ye olde desktop.
