An Overview of Modern Fancy UNIX Desktop Systems

Sunday, August 20, 2006

In the last few months, there has been a lot of talk about Xgl, compiz, AIGLX et cetera. It seems that "Xgl" has become a synonym for fancy desktop on Linux - but noone seems to talk about the alternatives or how it all works. I have had a little look into this and am going to summarize it for y'all. I will explain where the following come from and how they work:
* Xglx
* Xegl
* Luminocity
* AIGLX


Read more @ Nuxified.org!

Note from the Nerd: This is actually really interesting... I had no idea that there where so many XGL-like desktops! The following are links to more information about each project:
*Xglx (or XGL) | Wikipedia page
*Xegl
*Luminocity
*AIGLX | Wikipedia Page
