    What llvmpipe exposes is not my concern. The real issue here is performance.

    I was setting up two Windows 10 installations yesterday, one on a Skylake laptop with the standard Intel iGPU, the other on an Athlon 3000G with enbedded Vega graphics. Even without the GPU drivers, the Windows 10 GUI was able to fun at full speed with all those transparency and fade effects.

    On the other hand, Gnome 3 and Plasma Wayland were practically unusable on my dual-Xeon monster with 48 processor cores under llvmpipe.

      Sorry but I can't understand why you are complaining.

      On plasma just press Shift+Alt+F12 to disable composition.

      You will get a non accelerated desktop really fast without GPU and without llvmpipe and without those transparency and fade effects.

      I hope this will help you.
