Ubuntu 6.10 Beryl, XGL, and Compiz

Picture of IrvinI really did think that Vista was sweet because of the rotating 3D effects, but really Beryl on Ubuntu is smooth as can be… I don't even have that great a video card…

I did have the white screen issue, but I was able to resolve that by getting the latest from CVS. I learned how to do it from here 3d-desktop-beryl-and-xgl-on-ubuntu-edgy.html. Actually it was really easy. I'd recommend getting your 3D drivers working first, but now I am not envious of Vista at all. Here I get the sweet 3D eye-candy but without all of the crap DRM. To say that I am enthusiastic would be an understatement. I can't wait to see what is in Feisty Fawn!
