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?

"And let us not forget that Beryl/Compiz is not yet usable. It is far to unstable yet to be usable and it doesn't support Java applications with GUI right now."

Compiz supports GUI Java applications just fine now with JDK1.6.0u1.
