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.

I tried actual Xgl and compiz (x.org CVS) on my machine (ArchLinux) and have to say, well, it's nice, but also very unstable.

I doubt it makes much sense to get it shipped in March. They should wait some months for it to get mature.
