So the war for eye candy between Novell and Red Hat is on. Red Hat has just put up the Fedora Rendering Project anad it's first toy: <a href="http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/RenderingProject/aiglx">AIGLX</a> (Accelerated Indirect GL X).
Check out the videos.

So how long before we see either Novell's XGL stuff or this AIGLX on Gentoo? AIGLX sounds like it would be easier because they say a lot of it is already in Metacitys HEAD cvs branch and it only requires light modifications to X, where as XGL is a different branch (i think?) and required compiz, a new window manager.

What do people think?

Just off the top of my head, this looks like it might be more compatible with my out-of-date nvidia card than XGl turned out to be...
(support through indirect rendering instead of bombing out...)

wish i had time to work on an overlay :)
