X11, Window Managers A new acceleration architecture is being ported from kdrive by some QT developers, which will make composition managers like xcompmgr really fast and able to do some of the "display tricks" MacOS X has been doing for awhile.

one tangent regarding xorg
by foo on Sat 25th Jun 2005 22:37 UTC

It really seems, from an end user perspective, like the xorg guys are much worse than XFree every was about keeping a well maintained and up to date site with organized links to docs, mailing lists, releases, drivers, news, etc. Oh well, I guess 90% good is pretty good and better than nothing but it would be really nice if they put together a nice site. Hell, they could have just "forked" the XFree site when they forked XFree and they'd be doing a lot better than they are now.
