X does not however provide an OpenGL ES API, neither does GDK. Qtopia on the other hand does allow OpenGL ES integration. In fact Beryl/Compiz-type effects and composition is already avaliable on Qtopia (acording to their documentation - no screen shots). To do that on KDrive you'd have to implement the XComposite extension and write a complete compositing manager which knows how to speak OpenGL ES. A massive task.

I suspect this is a moot point anyway as I doubt we'll ever see an OpenGL ES library/driver for the SMedia. I really hope I'm wrong about this as the visual effects which could be achieved would be amazing, way better than the iPhone.
