Novell and Ximian Novell plans to release a beta for its Linux Desktop 10 including new features offering better interoperability with Microsoft Office and Open Office, said Ted Haeger, Novell's director of user communities, at the Southern California Linux Expo. The beta, tentatively scheduled for release next month, will include a new feature, dubbed Xgl. Haeger said Xgl will allow users to jump between screens and multiple desktops. Targeted to CAD software users, Xgl has a practical side that allows users to have better window- and file-sharing capabilities.

It seemed to run fine when I tried it on my P4 laptop (geforce4 MX 440 with 64MB VRAM). That's a three year old machine, so that seems reasonable. However, it was quite unstable and resizing was very slow. I'm sure the stability will improve, but I don't have high hopes for resizing to get fixed without significant improvements to the underlying memory allocator.
