where is the XGL live cd?


There is this XGL stuff which hardware accelerates the linux desktop – but since there are many movies that show the magnificence of this there is actually no real way to try it for ourselves – except when we would compile it ourselves… and that’s,…. well no solution at all.



So – I am searching for a not-too-much-pain bringing way of trying this XGL stuff…

I want one of those Q-WUXGA

Since my girlfriend has a brand new 1440×1050 notebook display it’s hard to ignore that 19″a 1280×1024 are not the highest possible dpi to have… and as a matter of fact I really want to have some more DPIs on my 19″ TFTs…

Take a look at this schematic:



As you can see, SXGA is quite Low-End these days :-) But we have to wait before the manufactures get serious with their 200 DPI displays…

we want a Top Gear track in racing simulations…

For some game generations we have the Nürburgring in racing simulations. But now a new challenge: Top Gear is in my opinion one of the best car- and motor-sport magazines ever made (and coming up the next months again).

So this magazine has a test track where all the cars have to do a power lap to set a time.

And that’s exactly what I want to do: I want to set a time and compete with others on this track. Wouldn’t it be great? Even after Jeremy Clarksons Gran Turismo experiment where JC exercised on a PS2 and raced the real track afterwards…
