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."

Of course they can do it. But that's not how OSS works. Look at RedHat. They probably are the single company who made most investements into OSS, and yet what they develop is all publicly available and released under the GPL.
Too bad that all the SUSE management quit long time ago... Monkey-heads are now running the company... and it shows.
