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.

Enlightenment and OpenGL

7. Does Enlightenment have future plans to incorporate OpenGL into "normal" window programming? What are your other thoughts about the future of E?

The Rasterman: Currently its able to use GL to do any of its rendering. Evas allows this by its design as an abstraction layer - and it works. I actually was running my desktop background view and file manager view using OpenGL yesterday. It works. This is why evas is so important to E - and in future it has many more possibly uses outside of E.

Those superfast evas numbers you see are run on the OpenGL backend.
