X11, Window Managers Updated: Fedora was right in the middle of announcing all this properly, so here is the updated item containing the official names. Videos included, as well as the inevitable 'Why not Xgl?'. "AIGLX is a project that aims to enable GL-accelerated effects on a standard desktop. We have a lightly modified X server (that includes a couple of extensions), an updated Mesa package that adds some new protocol support and a version of metacity with a composite manager. The end result is that you can use GL effects on your desktop with very few changes, the ability to turn it on and off at will, and you don't have to replace your X server in the process." This is part of Fedora's Rendering Project, and instructions on how to install all this are available too.

Does this mean that older cards like my Geforce2 Pro will not be supported by neither XGL nor Aiglx?

By XGL probably not.


Bull. There are already people on the Ubuntu forum that are getting XGL to work at some level with VERY old Nvidia hardware. While the wiki page for Redhat's work says almost no drivers work.

This post should probably serve as better answer than I could ever make

And the fact they never said it is a final solution. They opened project after discussions on XDevConf taking to account all talks between NVidia, DRI, XOrg...

And where on earth did you get impression that I would be belittleing Novells work. It's official. GLX IS A JAW-DROPPER.
