Love to get my hands on it soon !
I feel the same but about multi-touch
...and Vista graphics requires much more system resources comparing to GLX. A new graphic card for Vista? Much more RAM for Vista? Oh yeah, your majesty Vista! GLX does not require so much computer resources and works much more faster than Vista does. Much more!
...sure...JUCE works fine under Compiz as many other today applications under Linux, but ...when I told about support for GLX I meant that Compiz and GLX would provide the new API to easily implement all such things as were described here in the thread and that applications would run more effectively using that technology even partly. To use that new API means supporting. The same I can tell about Vista. There are many new API functions to use in it to conform to the Vista requirements (e.g. problems with Aero - you must conform to Aero requirements). It is quite fair that Vista supports old API applications, but it requires new approaches to be applied to applications to support Vista fully. For example, old drivers are incompatible with Vista just now. Old games (Direct8/9) are not running good or not running at all under Vista. Vista compels me to buy new hardware to indulge that fat "girl". So, nothing new even then. GLX left me feel much more solid then Vista. GLX requires only a video card that supports 3D rendering with shaders , that's all. On my old Nv GF-6800, GLX works just excellent, but Vista behaves like a fat fat girl. Why you do not see further. GLX suggests the excellent base to hidden things which is not seen yet and sure, much more exciting than Vista can provide. OSX? It's Unix now. What to say? A great future!
And isn't GLX just the name of the linux/sgi opengl implementation?
No. The inventor of GLX is Novell.
Xgl and compiz are both created mainly by David Reveman (Novell) with some additions from Matthias Hopf (SUSE).

Sure, there are many threads now out of GLX and Compiz.
Hooray! Open source SuSE Linux 10.2 has been released today! What a lovely day!!!
