When they say they support 3D acceleration, what they really mean is 3D 
in windows... In order to get decent 3D support in linux, you would need 
them to provide a linux video driver, for whatever hardware their VM 
presents the video system as, that supports 3D as well as the intel, AMD 
and NVIDIA drivers do. I might be out of date here, but as far as I am 
aware none of them come close to this yet...
