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.

That's really not the point now is it... according to the idea that we don't need more choice, then OpenOffice, which has a code base much older than KOffice, should be the only one that needs furthering and the KOffice devels should just go ahead and contribute to the OO.org development. This is the way I feel about the people screaming "Why don't they just work together?"
