Check this out http://chris.pirillo.com/2006/09/06/vistas...tter-than-this/

I have it installed on my ubuntu+kubuntu setup . Its very cool and a lot easier to use plus all the effects are very nice .

I hate people when they try to get too sweet and too friendly with you, as I always suspected they would want something from me.I think thats why I hate these *user friendly* Vista type/Beryl environment, I know they will eventually make me buy those fancy graphics card... and I will give in and buy them, and I will be stuck paying credit card all my life. :-(& i have been saving money for 4 months to get a 2x2 Xeon workstation - & 31st march I realize its better to invest that money in mutual funds & save tax

Compiz is working on Kororaa perfectly, it comes pre-installed. But I can't get it to work on Feisty Fawn and PCLinuxOS. Both of them have Compiz/Beryl pre-installed. I think my graphic card (ATI Radeon 200 Xpress) is not supported.

You dont need a fancy gfx card to make Beryl/Compiz work. All you need is the latest Intel Onboard Gfx. They very nifty and powerful things :) I have a Core2Duo machine and all the effects work amazingly well and it has actually boosted my productivity! :) Its not just eye candy, unlike vista! :p

well most probably the version of X11 server must be different. Some driver which is present in Kororaa isn't present in Ubuntu/PCLinuxOS. Also, the kernel maybe patched! I dunno... u gotta figure it out! :)
