You don't need to forgo 3D software, you just need to choose supported 
hardware, which is basically everything not made by NVidia (OK, there's also 
the Intel GMA500 "Poulsbo" netbook graphics chip and ATI Radeon HD >= 5000 
(r8xx, codename "evergreen") chips which are not supported at this time, but 
everything else made by Intel and ATI/AMD in the last few years has working 
3D support in the Free drivers).
