X11, Window Managers The Beryl project has often been criticised as being nothing more than eyecandy for the sake of eyecandy. However, there are numerous features in Beryl which could improve usability and workflow. In this series of three articles, some of the new usability features in Beryl 0.2.0 are highlighted and explained (article I, article II, and article III).

In my experience, AIGLX has been much faster than XGL. On Intel graphics chipsets, it's no contest. AIGLX absolutely hums on Intel. On NVIDIA, as long as you've got the latest 9xxx series binary drivers, AIGLX works very nicely. I found moving from XGL to AIGLX on NVIDIA fixed all my video playback issues (including xv).

Are these the new beta drivers? I don't know, I'm using AIGLX with NVIDIA on my desktop, and it doesn't feel as fast as XGL on my laptop, but perhaps my setup is suboptimal. I'll check it out tonight (I barely use my desktop PC anymore, so I haven't taken the time to update it in a while).
