X11, Window Managers David Reveman of Novell shares his thoughts on Xgl, Metacity, and more."I've been getting a lot of mail from people asking me about my thoughts on AIGLX, the GL compositing work being done on Metacity and nVidia's xdevconf paper. Instead of replying to everyone individually, I though I'd send a mail to the Xorg list."

Remember the reason NVIDIA makes OpenGL drivers for *NIX at all. It's not to support the total of 3 games that run on Linux. It's to support the very high end 3D modeling programs that run on Linux.

Ok, maybe it won't hurt Linux. But lack of out-of-the-box support will still kill OpenGL as far as Windows games are concerned.
