    So is our X1 supported for HW acceleration? Because I couldn't find the option in settings.

    @Marjolein - HW acceleration... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardware_acceleration

    @Angus - Same here... though i have shell 3.0 installed on my device right now, i barely start it... but i'll definitely be using the panel once it is out.

    Just a comment...
    You are talking about a panel, but it's intergrated with de windows panel. If you use the panelbutton, press the one in de left upper corner and you are in sbp shell...
    It's really the best I have ever seen. I only use this one. With the update it's working almost perfect.
    bye bye
