+ - Are XServers on Win32 (Xwin/Xming) dead?

Submitted by afa
afa (801481) writes "Unlike the continuous development of Xorg trunk, the XServers for Win32 platforms, i.e. Cygwin/X and Xming seems to be laid aside for quite long time. Although there are something already running at present, even part of OpenGL accelerations, fully support of indirect OpenGL acceleration (see also, Cygwin/X To-Do List ) is still somewhere halfway. Does that mean that we could never show off beryl's eye-candy upon VMWare or simply we do not need such functionality in MS Windows?"

Dreams are free, but you get soaked on the connect time.

Working...
