X11, Window Managers Kristian Hogsberg (Red Hat) has been hacking on Compiz and AIGLX to run them together and has managed to do it with impressive performance. "With a bit of hacking, I managed to get compiz (and glxcompmgr) running on aiglx. I'm running it on my i830 laptop, and the performance is actually quite impressive."

I'm speechless. Just when I have given up on the OSS community being inovative they really come arround and create something icredible. If this technology is marketed well ( and you can bet Novell will do their best ) linux might actually have a chance on the desktop. The next year ot 2 might turn out to be really good years for the comunity with MS releasing another batch of even more overbloated software ( Vista + Office 12 ). Well OSS doesn't yet provide an office suite that is quite as good or as capable as MS Office but the current offerings are not that much off.

Man I am really happy about xorg and all the development going arround it. Way to go Novell and RH!
