Gnome Linus Torvalds piped up in the comments of a Google+ posting by Linux kernel hacker Dave Jones to air his true feelings about Gnome 3: "it's not that I have rendering problems with gnome3 (although I do have those too), it's that the user experience of Gnome3 even without rendering problems is unacceptable." People care what Linus thinks, and when he ditched KDE for Gnome a couple of years ago, people took note. Now he's using Xfce.

It may not be that your hardware doesn't support it, just that you don't have the right drivers. I own an Acer laptop that has a Nvidia 330m chip in it and if i want to install ANY 3d-compositing environment, (gnome3, unity or otherwise) i have to download the correct drivers from Nvidia's website. I use Arch as my main system and this works fairly well.
