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."

Hey, guys, let aseigo put a bit of pressure on Novell, for God's sake. Yes, it is nice that they are people working on it. But, yes, it would be better if it was done in the cvs repository, like other people do.

Yeah let's all put lots of pressure on these companies until they drop out one by one. Hey that will really encourage other companies to open source their code or even use it. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.
