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.

Don't want to sound to Zen but I think you see my point even if you missed it the first time around. I wasn't saying that KOffice was worse off than OO.org. My whole point is that without the different projects we would be stuck with one or two things.

If we take the mentality that they should just work together and not have their separate projects, we are worse off.

Maybe I failed to insert enough sarcasm into my original statement.... I am too dry at times.
