Impressive.

Video done entirely on Cinelerra, BTW.

Makes Microsoft's Aero and Apple's Aqua look pathetic by comparison.

I'd given up waiting for Compiz support on Enlightenment, since the last
time I checked it seemed to be going nowhere. Of course, that wasn't too
surprising as Enlightenment was designed to support compositing natively
anyway, but Compiz development streaked ahead at a much faster pace. But
it appears that the devs were working on a new compositing manager based
on Compiz called "Ecomorph" all along.

This has significantly renewed my interest in this Debian-based distro.

Also check out these videos for a good flavour of Elive:
