The FAQ should mention why this happens:
  Q: Why are they crappy?
  A: They're not exactly crappy, 2D works quite well.
     NVIDIA is not helpful towards Free Software and will not help
     developers with specifications which would result in 3D drivers

  Q: What do I loose if I choose to be dependent on NVIDIA:
  A: Freedom, support from many Linux developers, probably the ability
to view some DVDs, etc...

All the faq does is explaining how to have 3D with NVIDIA's drivers,
without even hinting at why this happens and how bad it is.

I suggest to add this 2 subquestions.

Please AVOID sending me WORD, EXCEL or POWERPOINT attachments.
