An experimental 3D X desktop

Metisse is an experimental X desktop with some OpenGL capacity. It consists of a virtual X server called Xwnc, a special version of FVWM, and a FVWM module FvwmAmetista. Xwnc is a mix of Xvnc and XDarwin. It draws nothing on your screen; everything is drawn into pixmaps. Similarly to Xvnc, but with a different protocol, Xwnc can send these pixmaps (and other information) to a "viewer";. FvwmAmetista is such a viewer; it uses OpenGL for rendering the X desktop into a window of a "regular" 3D accelerated X server.
