3.0+ means, requires, writing -everything- in shaders (except if you
use compatibility profile which sort of beats the purpose). It is a
totally different mindset than the one we currently use. It is state
of the art of course but it also means new design to accomodate for
that (shader machine to generate code based on display requirements
etc.). It would also mean that developers will need to write shader
code too for new stuff. It will probably need to be undertaken
eventually but for the current discussion of minimum hardware
requirements, 2.1 is,realistically, the one to use.
