X11, Window Managers Yes it would be nice if X.org could use OpenGL directly for it's display and composition, but to date, nobody has made this possible. Is it wrong for a business to make it so? Since when does developing software for GNU products mean that they aren't allowed to do it privately? If Novell is developing XGL behind closed doors, and paying the developers to build it... Where's the problem?

Yes, all of this can be done on the main CPU and that line of thinking gave us WinModems!

And not doing it on the main CPU gives us proprietary encumbered "FOSS" systems. Might as wel move to windows then, if closed source software is as good as Free software.

Windows at least has the better supported Nvidia and ATI drivers and has already developed an excelerated architecture for Vista.
