Xgl is a significant development. It replaces much of the code in the traditional X server so all drawing is done via OpenGL (Open Graphics Library), the cross-platform alternative to Microsoft’s DirectX.

This means that, not only is the drawing of the screen performed by the graphics card rather than the processor, but it’s also possible to perform some spectacular effects when combined with a compositing window manager such as compiz.

So is XGL just a program that installs over any base linux os? Also is it easy to install/setup?

I believe XGL replaces X desktop. So that would mean it is just an add on.
