nvidia was removed successfully. On reboot, nouveau doesn't load due to an old bug. I had force the vesa loading.

Everything except nvidia-common has been removed.
nouveau is loaded.

glxgears runs smoothly but ~20 times slower, Blender's rendering is acceptable and 3D games aren't playable at FPS rates of about 2 FPS.

On reboot nouveau is loaded, and gui starts (in classic mode). glxgears was 10 times slower than with the nvidia proprietary driver installed: 2468 frames in 5.0 seconds = 493.459 FPS. Glxgears running had no impact on system stability, but of course unity was not running with the nouveau driver and OpenGL renderer string was Software Rasterizer.

Proprietary driver removed completely. Nouveau loads (I think), but can't log into Unity.

OpenGL vendor string: Mesa Project
OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.10.1
OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20

glxgears extremely slow (~20 times slower than proprietary).

After manually enabling experimental free 3d drivers Unity boots up.

All nvidia packages removed except nvidia-common. On reboot nouveau is loaded and glxgears runs smoothly
