Interesting article anyways. Maybe when 3D matures more, and we get 120hz IPS panels I might give it a try.
Couldn't have said it better myself.

I'm seeing 3d fade away, again, before it gets any better. We've all discussed the 3d cycle before. It's too expensive, too niche, and too limiting. I remember back in the Voodoo days when all you needed were those expensive ass goggles that you hooked in your vga between the monitor and the card.

Just like hardware accelerated physics, we're not going to see mainstream adoption until/unless Microsoft writes it into DirectX.
