SuSE, openSUSE "When you're done installing SUSE Linux 10.1 OSS, your desktop system is not complete. You might still need support for Java programs, MP3 audio files, and browser plugins for Macromedia Flash, Adobe Acrobat, RealPlayer, and Windows Media Video. You may also want to add support for playing DVD videos on your computer, and to try out the new XGL graphical toys. Here's how to effectively make SUSE Linux 10.1 into the perfect desktop OS."

I disagree about XGL being useless, I guess you used to plain old boring desktop.

The guy is right and wrong at the same time.

While I disagree that XGL is useless in the context that it provides hadrdware accelerated gui, effects and all that I have to say that, at this point, it IS useless for some people. I really like XGL and compiz but until they can make it work on more than one screen (dual head) there's not much use for it in the worksation area.
