However, there are numerous features in Beryl which could improve usability and workflow. In this series of three articles, some of the new usability features in Beryl 0.2.0 are highlighted and explained (article I, article II, and article III).

In my experience, AIGLX has been much faster than XGL. On Intel graphics chipsets, it's no contest. AIGLX absolutely hums on Intel. On NVIDIA, as long as you've got the latest 9xxx series binary drivers, AIGLX works very nicely. I found moving from XGL to AIGLX on NVIDIA fixed all my video playback issues (including xv).
