Can Vista do this?

Found this video on YouTube entitled ‘Xgl Demo’ .. This guy must be running a monster machine, but still – it’s pretty impressive..

From Wikipedia: As of May 2006, the Xgl X Server (and related components including the Compiz compositing manager and associated graphical config tools) ships as a non-default in one major Linux distribution, SUSE 10.1, and is included in Frugalware Linux or SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10. Xgl can be set up fairly easily for Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper) with binary packages from unofficial repositories. Xgl is also available as an overlayed package in Gentoo Linux. There is also a PKGBUILD for Arch Linux available. The Mandriva betas of Mandriva Linux 2007 also have Compiz , Xgl and AIGLX configurable through drak3d.
