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.

You forgot security! Vista's Aero Glass UI makes it secure *nod*

It seems that joking with something as serious as Xgl is frowned upon by people here, so we better stop. Unfortunately Xgl does not change the humor perception coefficient in its die-hard fans, but maybe in time there will be a software project that can address this very issue.

And, for those stuck firmly on the other side of the big sarchasm (no, not a typo), I actually look forward to using Xgl when it's in an useable state.
