X11, Window Managers Updated: Fedora was right in the middle of announcing all this properly, so here is the updated item containing the official names. Videos included, as well as the inevitable 'Why not Xgl?'. "AIGLX is a project that aims to enable GL-accelerated effects on a standard desktop. We have a lightly modified X server (that includes a couple of extensions), an updated Mesa package that adds some new protocol support and a version of metacity with a composite manager. The end result is that you can use GL effects on your desktop with very few changes, the ability to turn it on and off at will, and you don't have to replace your X server in the process." This is part of Fedora's Rendering Project, and instructions on how to install all this are available too.

I don't care for visual effects and beauty of an interface. The only thing which I like is performance, simple and easy to use interface. ThankGod RedHat is focusing on there interface.
I love Linux but the only reason that I don't use it as my desktop OS is because of its slow response in GUI. I use its CLI and I use Linux only for programming and other work. Windows GUI is really fast if compared with GNOME or KDE.
I am happy that Fedora community is focusing on there interface. I think all of the distributions must focus on there GUI performace.
