XGL... *drool*

Anyone who wants to try XGL without completely b0rking their system should take a look at this XGL liveCD. It's a completely safe way to test out XGL.

XGL is an OpenGL-accelerated X server, meaning everything is drawn via hardware. This enables crazy special effects like wobbly liquid windows and rotating workspace-switching cube effects and menus that kind of "boing" when you open them, and that's barely scratching the surface apparently. It's impossible to describe. Look at the videos on the bottom of this page if you haven't already.
