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."

Aaron Segio has, once again, showed the lack of maturity in certain parts of the KDE community. And this time it's someone who represents Trolltech as a developer. In order for RedHat and Novell and others to compete with Microsoft, they need to be able to deal with people that have a certain level of maturity and the KDE community, once again, demostrates they are lacking there.

And you showed you can't handle criticism, even reasonable one. Can't you discuss stuff without calling names?

Here is a tip for you: focus on the issues. There is nothing objective on your post.
