Sure you can.  The VIA unichrome cards have open 3D drivers.  But, of
course, it's not the best 3D hardware on the market.

linux means you _need_ to release an open source driver, you will find
that the best hardware is disproportionately unsupported.  Nvidia has a
lot more valuable IP at stake than VIA when they release an open source
driver for their 3D gear.  If you don't understand why, I can't help
