I upgraded my graphics card on Renoke, the Ubuntu workstation, to a nVidia 256MB card. Then I installed Beryl the friendly interface to Compiz and OpenGL bliss on Linux. I must say, it’s been a long time since I’ve been that entertained by my computer’s eye candy. Nothing I’ve seen yet from Apple or Microsoft can out do the bling of Beryl.
It’s fast too! I switched between desktops faster than I my eyes could keep up. I have only just begun to play with all the options. The only qualm I have with it so far, is that the developers based it on a older version of Gnome.
If you want the most exciting and flashy interface to ever grace a computer, forget OSX, Vista and anything you’ve seen in a movie – get Ubuntu and Beryl!
