Remi Cardona is currently talking at FOSDEM 2008 in the X.Org development room about Metisse. For those that don't know, Metisse
is an open-source X Window System that was conceived as a French research project (and is incorrectly considered competition to Compiz). Remi's talk is on the features of Metisse, various desktop demonstrations, and bringing Metisse and X.Org together. Some of the items he shared for the Metisse road-map include adding a configuration interface, Expose-like features, FreeDesktop.org integration, and then X.Org integration. This research project is also looking at collaborative features such as window sharing between computers or other mobile devices, etc.
The video of the FOSDEM 2008 Metisse talk will be up soon on our other server
. All other talks from yesterday and this morning are already available for download as Ogg Theora.
