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.

These links http://developer.novell.com/wiki/index.php/Apparmor_FAQ and http://www.novell.com/products/apparmor/overview.html will explain the product better to you. As for your "proprietary add on" comment I've already stated AppArmor is licensed under the Gnu Public License (GPL) and therefore has no licensing fees"

Bull. User space tools are still proprietary. Only the kernel part has been GPL'ed. SELinux is already in the upstream kernel. What about Apparmour?.


"
Well then what you're implying is that information online such as here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XGL where it's stated XGL was released open source 02/02/06 is incorrect."

Incorrect. I am stating a fact that XGL is NOT under GPL but thunder a Xorg license. Looks like you dont understand licensing differences at all. Novell has done XGL under closed door while rest of the vendors working on Xorg cvs directly. Thats what Novell as a proprietary vendor is doing. Playing tricks
