Yes, I can't stand that stupid crippled launcher, it really does annoy me.
I use the shell for file searches and the search box just isn't as good as dmenu for my use case and dmenu doesn't work under Wayland
But I digress...
And hey, go easy on sunrat -- this is an interesting thread

Well, the "fallback" desktop can be selected, although I would like to see that useless error message be reworked to point this out.
Otherwise, I would say that using hardware acceleration to move stuff around the desktop sounds like a much better idea than farming everything out to the CPU, providing the user has a half-decent graphics card.
We have so many threads started here by people trying to enable hardware acceleration for better performance, it seems strange to me to criticise GNOME for offering this functionality.

As phenest notes, that program is only needed for convenience
All of the options in the GNOME desktop can be controlled exclusively from the command line with gsettings(1), this makes the desktop tremendously flexible as it can be scripted
