I have just installed something called Beryl on my Ubuntu box, and dear lord, have I been left speechless! I can guarantee that you have never seen graphics like this unless you own a Mac (and I doubt even they can emulate this)!
I’m so full of wonder that I cannot really do anything other than make weird croaky sounds. Instead of trying to tell you what this is all about let my show you. FYI, Beryl is a high level graphical window manager for linux. Do take a look at this video. For best effects, watch fullscreen.
if you want to check this out for real, drop by my place anytime. I’ll be more than happy to show off. And do comment, the graphics have like totally blown my mind.
