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.

My point was that when comparing Vista's performance with its effects, you must compare them as if they were being performed on the host CPU. Making the GPU do tasks is not necessarily going to make the experience 'faster' if what you are doing is just adding more 'things' and performing them on the GPU. If your comparison is between effects performed on the GPU and sans effects entirely, the comparison is loaded.
