Kororaa 0.3 XGL + AIGLX LiveCD

Kororaa 0.3 includes the open-source display drivers for the Intel and ATI components, meanwhile NVIDIA users are out of luck for any XGL or AIGLX action.

Myah OS v2.2

Myah OS: ever hear of it? Neither did we till we decided to give it a shot with its recent 2.2 release. Myah OS is built on GNU/Linux with the KDE desktop environment but they have extensively tweaked the user interface and have made it a relatively visually pleasing desktop -- except for the fact that it looks very similar to Windows XP in many respects. Myah OS 2.2 is based upon Slackware 11, Linux 2.6.17.8 kernel, and includes many proprietary packages such as ATI/NVIDIA and Sun's Java.
