Project Looking Glass on Mandrake

Ok I just got project looking glass from sun Microsystems installed. For thos that does not know about it, there you will find more info, it is a project that turns you linux PC into a completly 3D desktop.
What I want to know is Who here is also running Looking glass on mandrake?
I have it running on 10.1 community edition. I can start it only as a Window in my currently running desktop. Because it is giving some errors when trying to make it my default seesion, I think that xorg isn't fully supported yet or maybe the 2.6 kernel. So anybody running it? How is it doing?

Yeah, that 3D desktop thing looks cool! I wonder if that will be the future of desktops in Windows 2010.

I'm using xorg 6.7.0 this may be the problem I believe. And I don't like desk3d that much I don't use different desktop just to raise performance.
EDIT: Micro$oft Winslows is making something similar called Avalon but it is so poor and not Kool, I feel sorry for Bill Gates he should get a life or try to buy a life with his money.
