you know how OSX the entire GUI in openGL, so that it can be hardware accelerated by the graphics chip and take a load off the CPU?
It's fantastic because it makes even a slow machine seem soooo much snappier and less aggravating than one without openGL gui accel.
IMHO, I think that was one of the best ideas ever in HCI/usability
so is there any way to do that sort of thing in linux? if so, what do I need to do it?
