    Phoronix: Compiz Support For Multi-Pointer X

    In May we shared that Multi-Pointer X (or MPX for short) was entering the mainline X server. While it was merged to master that month, X Server 1.5 was already branched out and therefore it won't appear in X.Org 7.4, but it will appear in X Server 1.6 (X.Org 7.5) until next year.

              I doubt it - ir was available already. There's a bunch of videos of wii remote + compiz.

                  Input Redirection ?

                  man, I hate acronyms!

                  Does IR mean Infra-Red in this context or Input Redirection? I thought the latter.
