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.

who cares if redhat and novell work together as long as the end result is open source? How is this any different than other competing projects with different developer bases?

Personally I think Novell is doing the right thing and that EXA will die. People complain that XGL might not perform on older hardware. Well guess what? linux itself stops performing on older hardware as well. all new software stops performing on old hardware. get used to it.
