 The State of Linux Graphics

This is a great article on what's going on with Linux graphics. It covers all sorts of things such as X, XAA, Cairo, OpenGL, Kernel Graphics Support, VGA support, OpenGLIES, and more.

"X.org is about to release X11R7. The primary feature of this release is the modularization of the X source code base. While modularization doesn’t mean anything to most users, it will make it much easier to work on the X source code. Before modularization the X source tree consisted of about 16M lines of code all built as a single project. After modularization the tree will be split into dozens of independent pieces, making the project much easier to build and understand."
