X11, Window Managers "Desktop computing technology has evolved considerably since the first graphical user interface was developed by researchers at Xerox's Palo Alto Research Center in 1973. Microsoft's Aero Glass, Apple's Quartz 2D Extreme, and Sun's Project Looking Glass are all poised to transform the way that users interact with computers. Also at the forefront of innovation, the Linux community has some prodigiously impressive new user interface technologies of its own. Beryl, a new open-source window manager for Linux, features compelling visual enhancements like support for transparent windows and elaborate window animations."

One of our IT Managers had just seen Beryl running and he was really raving over it. At home he uses Win as his main system but keeps an RH box to play with as he is responsible for an RHEL server. But by and large he is a Windows man.

When XP came out he was full of enthusiasm for it. He seemed genuinely sad when I told him that I planned never to install it on my home system.

Now not a peep about Vista, just talk of about how cool the Linux desktop has become. I guess it's a sign of the times.
