... reflections of whatever-you-want-to-reflect-on-other-surfaces??

Have there been any speaking of this??

That would be awsome in some cases...

I never stop to amaze about the advanced features in the human bodys's simplicity.

 Works great

Even if it is in early stage, Xgl works great. I've got it working on my gentoo box, and glxcompmgr is way more stable than kompmgr (nor a single crash). It's a shame that I can't get compiz to work fine too.
By the way, is anyone writing a kwin patch? :D


Linux...giving Microsoft a taste of mortality.

I have had much fun with wobbling windows and fading effects, but the missing kde-window-decorator, the sys-tray-problem and the problem that I cannot use Konqueror and Kontact made XGL/Compiz unusable for me.
What a pitty... :-(

C'mon! This is a... maybe not revolutionary, but awsome piece of tech nevertheless! I installed ubuntu just to check it out, and I must say that using compiz w. gnome-panel , nautilus et al is awesome.

 Kororaa

I tried this with the Kororaa xgl live cd, and it's really impressive. The usefullness of the wavy window effect is questionable, but the Exposé effect is very usefull. so is the alt-tab effect.

The modular design is what really puts windows vista to shame, since it is possible to write new effects as plugins.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
