X11, Window Managers In 2002, both KDE and GNOME released their last major revisions; KDE released KDE 3.0 on 3rd April, while GNOME followed shortly after with GNOME 2.0 on 27th June. For the Linux desktop, therefore, 2002 was an important year. Since then, we have continiously been fed point releases which added bits of functionaility and speed improvements, but no major revision has yet seen the light of day. What's going on?

How is it better? Aero is nor limited to only a number of compatible graphiccards, is stable and some apps that are incompatible make it go into fallback mode, wothout restarting the WM. Yeah, it hasn't the Exposť clone, granted, but I guess thats because Steve Ballmer fears to get beaten up by Steve Jobs.

WTF??? The Mac Desktop is an OpenGL scene for YEARS! It's the gold standard for 3D accelerated WMs.
