Compiz Fusion

If your anything like me, you love your desktop bling and nothing comes close to the bling that Compiz Fusion brings. It’s way ahead of even the effects you see on a Mac at the moment.

Projects like this bring a smile to my face. Projects like this justify why we, as Linux users are among the (growing) minority. Projects like this encourage people to go ahead and install Linux, even if they had no intentions of doing so before; and this can only be a good thing for the Linux community.

This leads me a more sobering and UMPC related point. If Linux is to be a viable alternative to Windows on the next-generation UMPC platform, it not only has to do as good as its peers, it has to blow them out of the water.

Life Hacker has an interesting article on Compiz Fusion which is definitely worth a read.
