X11, Window Managers It has been one year and four days since X.Org 7.3 was released and a number of months since X.Org 7.4 was supposed to be released, but today X.Org 7.4 is scheduled to finally make it out the door! This release is shipping quite late and with a slimmed down set of features, but in this article we have more details on what this release holds in store for the Linux desktop community and why it may be a short-lived release.

it is funny that nvidia which has been doing this as they have their own memory manager and probably have an architecture similar in function to uxa to accelerate render. Yet, using xgl is still faster than nvidia's render acceleration, especially as with the use of a compositing manager, the gpu is accelerating pure opengl only (not render+opengl)

Only the most recent beta drivers seem to be approaching the speed of xgl (using kde4).
