Did you read that correctly?   GNOME Shell *does* work on x86 systems
without 3D acceleration, and I don't think 'most' developers or
sysadmins run GUIs on non-x86 machines.

That's not to say that this isn't a real limitation.  It would certainly
be good to have GNOME fully working on all our architectures again, and
particularly MIPS laptop and desktop systems.
