> Slow? Have you ever seen Xgl?

It is slow. Just take any older machine (Pentium class), open any longer
web page in Firefox and scroll it up and down. Or open some other
window, move it around the screen on top of the Firefox window and see
how "fast" it really is. Then repeat the same in Windows.
How can Xgl help here?

Yeah! Windows 3.0 is lightning fast on a Pentium-class machine.
However, Windows XP is dog slow. However, XFCE on the same machine is
much more usable. I don't see the problem, then.
