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.

Don't hesitate to participate to the testing ;)

I know there was issue with Nforce chipset and APIC. Now this is solved. On mots computer I tried latest Mandriva, it was rock solid ( especially after removing kat ).
2007 seems to be stable, but the bugs relies mostly on design change ( switch to XDG menu, usage of Gnome 2.16 beta 2 for which printers doesn't work, ... ).
Besides that most software seem to be stable.

To follow bugs concerning AIGLX/XGL, see my blog :
