"Considering that Xorg with Composite/Xcompmgr is buggy as hell (and I can't imagine how buggy is the new GL server + Cairo), yes, by the time Longhorn will be out maybe this stuff will be usable."

Yes, Longhorn has no bugs and its development is not late...

I prefer to wait for a eye-candy free system than buy an expensive, closed, DRM-full, bloated, patented, proprietary and buggy non-operating system like Longhorn.
