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.

You can continue to believe that code that is already is Xorg cvs is not stable compared to Novell closed development which has undergo no peer review or integration with the primary Xorg project.


I will, because unlike you I have tried both the new Metacity and XGL and XGL is far better and more stable. Long time composite problems are fixed completely by XGL. If you want a list find one here:

And deal with the fact that behind closed doors at Novell David did better than the rest of the community all put together.
