I for one have been most interested in Project Looking Glass. It's one of the most innovative desktops I've seen in a long while. The rabbits hat is off to looking glass!
Keith Packard over at freedesktop who used to work for XFree86 has begun working on a X-server with true transparency and stuff, still not much more than a mockup yet though.
Hi, I am not sure how far they are with the dev.. but ind brussels (fosdem) I was on a reading from on of the guys from the XFree Project and he said that soon an opengl based X11 server will be released which will make it much easier to develop "3D desktops", he even showed some screenshots of it. Looked really great!.
I think it would be quite hard, prolly be easier with fluxbox or something. Looking glass is made in java while almost everything related to gnome and kde is made in c or c++.
Yes, but there's a long way towards a full-featured Desktop Manager.
IMHO, it would make more sense to integrate Looking Glass into an existing Desktop Manager, like KDE or Gnome.
(though I have to admit that I've no idea if this is even feasible ;-)
