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.

Something needs to be done to improve X... for every fanboy rant about how it can render content as fast or it test so much faster than windows, you have ten nube users who sit down complaining about "Flicker" when they drag a window... and then wondering why when they increase the refresh rate it gets worse... DUH...

On the other hand, if they are gonna bloat it down further with stupid shit like transparant windows who needs it... talk about something I DON'T understand. Makes the text impossible to read, wastes CPU/GPU rendering time etc. etc.
