Red Hat Red Hat announced a new client product, Red Hat Global Desktop, at its annual Red Hat Summit tradeshow in San Diego. This move is designed, in part, to compete with Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 Desktop, which has achieved success in business desktop markets, and with Ubuntu 7.04, which will soon appear on Dell PCs. Some reporting about this can also be found at the company's magazine. Update: Elsewhere, talking security with Red Hat's Mark Cox.

I wouldn't underestimate

Red Hat, after all when Novell got the limelight with XGL they showed their AIGLX. Look now no one is using XGL to power Compiz/Beryl and AIGLX is in Xorg now.

I trust Red Hat far more than Novell when It comes to delivering the goods.

Well, except if you want to run Beryl/Compiz on an ATI card that requires the proprietary fglrx driver, in which case you're quite happy that Xgl exists...

Depends what cards, the opensource ATI driver for 7.2 has full acceleration for older ATI cards like 9200 which fglrx don't support.
