Any OS worth its salt works on _completely_ different graphics
processors in the same machine. When I install a new graphics card in
my PC, I don't have to install a completely new OS, I just install the
new graphics driver. If the OS _requires_ sophisticated 3D just to do
basic stuff, then it's _extremely_ poorly designed.
