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."

"Either we are missing some more info about AIGLX support plans in the future or Red Hat has decided Nvidia will be the only choice."
"Actually, since Nvidia actually makes decent drivers for their products for linux I guess they kind of are the only choice for linux desktop users."

Xorg runs on more platforms than Linux, wich is why a vendor and platform agnostic solution is the only acceptable choice.
