Pierpaolo, when one uses XGL, is he not using X as well? I thought
that _any_ graphical output in Linux required X (X.org or X86). Is
this not so? In wikipedia it says that XGL is an X server
architecture. Does that mean that it replaces X.org and X86? Is there
a page that explains it all in terms that someone with a CS background
could understand? (us ME majors don't understand much :) )
