It would be a shame if NVidia doesn't have any support for Keith Packard's X server implementation. It has a lot of nice features that the XFree86/XOrg versions do not, but it would be difficult to use an X server without any OpenGL acceleration.
Look at BeOS with its nice and fast GUI. Its death. I also like the way and the X Server from K.P., but its like in the car industry an prototype and a long way from an really stable release. Wait 1-2 years for it. I really hope it goes faster and will be our next X one, but it also has some not so good things like the servers from XF3.3, for every card an own server...

Look also at http://www.fresco.org/ earlier Berlin named. It has many good features, too. But, in developement since years. Its difficult to wrote an new X system from the outset
