Adam, where can I read about XGL and AIGLX in a way that someone who
is not a CS major would understand? I make an effort to understand how
things work, and I know to STFW and RTFM but I cannot find entry level
information. Thanks, and sorry to ask the basic silly question, but
I'm having a hard time finding info on my own.
