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."

Also, David's approach has been more manager-agnostic meaning the technology is equally suited to Gnome, KDE, XFCE, etc while Red Hat's technology seems give preferential treatment to Metacity.

I would say less manager-agnostic, since your only choice is to use his windowmanager Compiz. With RedHat's approach you can extend the existing windowmangers to support the new features of AiXgl. And some windowmangers, like KWin, already has a compmgr to extend.
