It's also possible to have it installed if you are using Ubuntu Dapper. It's
an apt-get belt-and-braces exercise (or Synaptic if you are UI-inclined).
Needs slight editing of XOrg files subsequently.

I hear it can be quite slow at time, /not/ "as seen in the demo". Wobbling
menus in particular can make it impractical for regular use. When enabling
fade-in and fade-out transparencies in KDE, I can describe that as
uimpractical as well. Look modern though.

Best wishes,
