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.

Close your eyes... clear your mind... read the entire discussion again... doesn't it sound silly?
Which one is right? which one is wrong? How the code design should be done, how you should or not try different ideas...

Well, in the end it's all politics... everyone trying to convince the others how better their ideias are... Because, in the end, it's how the world works. There's no right or wrong, just different opinions and points of view. Let's just try to repect everyone else and if possible live and work together. Maybe them these projects will also came to a common point (or 'direction' if you don't like 'points').

Maybe we should just analize the advantages and disvantages of each one, instead of trying to blame the ones who didn't agree in the begning. What each one can learn from the other (well, because they are both "open" right? there's nothing but ego and a little work limiting the use of each one's experience. There's not intelectual property been warmed or any problem like that).

There's no cruzades. We can't salve to world because it doesn't need to be salved.
We can just live and try to coexist the best way we can...
