SuSE, openSUSE Mad Penguin has published a review of SUSE 10.1, including info on multimedia, XGL/Compiz, and a flash movie of the installation. They conclude: "The desktop itself is one to be reckoned with. I was able to be instantly productive with this release of SUSE. I didn't need to "fiddle" with anything outside of getting multimedia support back in place, but that's another argument for another day isn't it? The bottom line is that I was able to install the OS and apps, sit down, and go right to work."

XGL + KDE?

This thing occurred to me: every screenshot of a fancy Xgl-drawn desktop or instructions to use Xgl concentrate on the Gnome DE. As I am more of a KDE person, I'd like to know if the fancy windows (wobbling and stuff) are only available on Gnome or can I expect reasonably good results trying to use KDE with Xgl?

PS.Xgl/Compiz has quite blown apart my nice newbie understanding of how desktops and windowing work on Linux (KWin on top of KDE on top of X.Org) so if I have misunderstood something or have falsely expressed myself then all corrections are appreciated. ;)
