it is really pretty like vista and has the whole cube feature where you can switch screens. its free but idk bout gaming on it
XGL is an X server built on OpenGL, it renders windows and things, it has nothing to do with games. It's not a patch for games, you must have XGL and Cedega confused. Cedega will run most Windows-based games on Linux, but it has nothing to do with XGL.
There are games that have native Linux versions, including:
Quake 1, 2, 3 and 4, Doom 3, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Wolf:ET, all of the Unreal series, including the upcoming UT2k7. ET:QW will also have a native Linux version.
Remember -> You don't need Windows to run games, the game developers write games for Windows. If they kept making games for Linux, Linux may become the next gaming platform, and people will be saying "you need Linux to play games" ... It's all up to the developers, unfortunately. At least we have ID Software and Epic on our side.
