Compizzle by Chromakode Compizzle by Chromakode
It works. And it's absolutely the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen running on GNOME. All hail David Reveman as your new overlord. There is absolute genius in this program's design. It's fast, it's some of the best usability thinking you'll ever see, and it's bling central. Lots of ideas fresh off the Apple tree.

For the techies:
xserver-xgl and compiz are now in Ubuntu Dapper. Apt-get, add a little mojo to your .Xsession file and you have compizzle. Install it, and play for hours.
I'll be blogging a howto on the .Xsession bits shortly, check Koda when it is done :)

Umm what? I have no idea what this does, but it looks sweet.

Compiz is a new Linux OpenGL powered window manager, which sports some very unprecedented desktop effects in the Linux world. For more information and a video, see [link] :D

Ah, I see. I'll try to find a video so I can see what it's all about. It looks very cool, but I have no real experience with Linux so I doubt I'll still be able to get the real effect it has on those who know their stuff in Linux. :P

That is indeed a spiffy looking new toy. To be honest, I was thinking Gnome was looking a little dated. This is a nice addition.

Definitely! There's a lot of new talent popping up in the Gnome circles... and many rather new projects are finally making the mainstream... :)

I installed Dapper last night with the hope of getting the XGL stuff up and running tonight... :) Glad to see you got it running fine on a 9600... since us ATI people typically have more issues than the Nvidia folk. Woohoo! Congrats... I may have to harass you a little if I run into issues. ;)

Haha, good luck in getting it working! Yeah, us ATI users have been denied our toys for a long time ;)
Do feel free to let me know if you run into any problems, I'd be happy to help out if you need any troubleshooting or advice. Have fun! :D
