To clear something up, IIRC 7 uses GNOME Classic - not stock GNOME 3 -
as its default, which does *not* require 3D.

In the default desktop, GNOME looks a lot like GNOME 2x.

This isn't to say we shouldn't package Mate or Xfce or any additional
desktops for CentOS - but it'd be good to make sure people are moving
away from the defaults as an informed choice.
