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."

"Yer, it's called Amarok and it didn't need Novell to spend money and time on creating a new open source project."

I use Banshee and I'm very glad they decided to do it. Amarok is no Banshee. ;)
(that may be a good thing in your opinion, of course. I'm just saying that, to me, Amarok doesn't come close).
