X11, Window Managers Aaron Siego of KDE: "It would be very nice if our X server could use OpenGL directly for its display and composition. Because then we could have hardware accelerated effects that are not only cool looking, but also very useful. Well, there is just such a project underway, called XGL. But don't hold your breath. The development of XGL has been largely removed from the community and is being done behind closed doors. Who is this company, you ask, that would take the development of something as potentially important as this out of the community and put it behind closed doors? Novell."

Exactly. Who cares about running alpha quality product. Let them bring it to market in at least a semi-workable state. The OSS community is good, but sometimes you don't have the time for distractions from the work and just want to get something done. Why does everyone insist that every single line of code should be on a cvs. When it's ready it's ready. When it comes out decide if it's good for you. All this protesting is ill.
