If you are using Ubuntu dapper, Xgl is in the universe repo, and is available now. Having been using it for the past few weeks, I can vouch that the technology is complete and *stable*.

I have used Vista builds in the past few months and honestly, the Aero glass interface not only has inferior effects than what is provided in compiz, but the destop performance was also inferior as well (Apart from window resizing performance, which aero handles better).

It is *far* from complete.

That said, I haven't had any stability problems whatsoever.
