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."

Agreed. I would prefer that Oxygen would be developed on the open as well.

/*If I remember correctly*/ When I was reading Tango mailing lists they said Oxygen and Tango will cooperate on icon naming, etc. Meaning common spec that all should use.
So, yes in that case it is interesting even for non-KDE users.

They already do. In a public cvs server (freedesktop.org)
See here: http://standards.freedesktop.org/icon-theme-spec/icon-theme-spec-la...
And here: http://cvs.freedesktop.org/*checkout*/icon-theme/default-icon-theme...

The tango website points to the same locations, see http://tango-project.org/Standard_Icon_Naming_Specification

Let me say that I can only praise the tango guys for working on that, together with the kde hackers. They are already colaborating in an open way.
