X11, Window Managers Mandriva 2007 will have support for 3D desktop effects through Xgl/AIGLX. The choice between AIGLX and Xgl will be made automatically according to the graphic card driver possibilities. The support is currently being tested in Mandriva Cooker, and will work for both GNOME and KDE through Free as well as proprietary drivers.

At installation drakx11 will enable or disable Composite accordingly. For example example Composite is disabled by default for nvidia cards ( with proprietary drivers ) as this may be counter-productive for XGL.
At the contrary Composite is activated by default for Intel graphic chipsets ( thus allowing AIGLX usage ).
