[News] GNU/Linux Runs in Full Glory Under Other Operating Systems

Hash: SHA1

Compiz INSIDE VirtualBox? YES.

,----[ Quote ]
| VirtualBox 2.2.0 has been released today.
| Looks to be a good release… then I see this in the changelog:
| “OpenGL 3D acceleration for Linux and Solaris guests”
| You know what that means?  That means you can have full support for Compiz… 
| inside a Linux guest running in VirtualBox. 



[compiz] [ANNOUNCE] compiz-0.8.0

| New plugin "commands" that handles the bindings for arbitrary commands that
| previously were handled in core. In addition to the previously present key
| bindings button and edge bindings were added as well.


First Look: Elive E17 Compiz

| If you've read the latest Softpedia Linux Weekly you probably remember the
| video clip of the week showing a lot of awesome desktop effects. Wait, don't
| leave just yet. I know you're sick of all those
| Compiz Fusion praising videos that are everywhere on the Internet but this
| time it's a little different. We're talking about a distribution and its
| desktop environment that didn't cross ways with Compiz. Until now. Yep, there
| is a special Elive E17 bundled with all the good 3D stuff. Knowing Elive's
| reputation of being one of the most beautiful and stylish distributions out
| there, what can really go wrong if you combine two of Linux's most valuable
| eye-candy providers?
| After watching that video, we decided to put it to the test on one of our
| machines to see if all that buzz around it was really worth it. For more fun,
| the test PC was sort of a prehistoric one with 512 MB of RAM and an Nvidia
| GeForce FX 5200 (yeah...). Well, it wasn't just for fun, but it was also a
| very good way to evaluate Elive's performance under such extreme conditions.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
