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."

What is the XGL license?

Member since:

Whta license is this XGL code under, and when it was previously released more openly what does the license allow?

I think the license may be under the XFree86 license but I can't find where it is explicitly stated though. What does this license allow?

Linux is really a XFree86/GNU/Linux system...
