Well it is going to use the CPU to emulate the effects versus the non-existant GPU so your CPU/memory usage will be much higher. I am not sure that the items Bastien was talking about are in F17, F18 or something being worked for F19.

Which brings us to the real point: what is the purpose of using 3D rendering here? Is it to display (more or less) useless animations and endless screen changes (i.e. overview) or is it so that _appropriate_ hardware does the job of rendering? With Gnome 3, it appears to be the former.
