Novell and Ximian Novell plans to release a beta for its Linux Desktop 10 including new features offering better interoperability with Microsoft Office and Open Office, said Ted Haeger, Novell's director of user communities, at the Southern California Linux Expo. The beta, tentatively scheduled for release next month, will include a new feature, dubbed Xgl. Haeger said Xgl will allow users to jump between screens and multiple desktops. Targeted to CAD software users, Xgl has a practical side that allows users to have better window- and file-sharing capabilities.

Buy a copy of Novell Linux Desktop just to support Novell. They spend lots of money funding features like Xgl and compiz.

No thanks. I only drink free beer.

So you wouldn't give a credit or anything to someone who brews the beer you drink for free? Such ingratitude, it's not about paying, it's about support.

Who are you to question my integrity and motives for using free software? If you don't want it to be free, commercialize it. Otherwise, shut the hell up.
