GTK+ "Ars was at FOSSCamp this weekend. Think of FOSSCamp as an 'un-conference' without a set agenda where the minds behind open source projects get together and plot world domination (and, err, ways to improve their code). One fascinating session (and one that shows how FOSSCamp works and why it's so productive) was given by Mirco Muller, who discussed using OpenGL in GTK applications. Muller - the developer behind Cairo-Clock and the LowFat image viewer - talked about the state of OpenGL support in desktop applications and described various techniques that developers can use to make OpenGL content integrate better with conventional GTK user interfaces."

This is great stuff in the right direction. It would be great if Linux widgets were accelerated automatically. However, at the moment I'm not sure that people know what to do with this. For the record I use Linux to develop web apps and I would love to have my desktop buttons pulse and whatever.

I'll be measuring the maturity of this movement by how many people have relevant things to say about it.
