Hash: SHA1

Compiz Fusion boost my 3D performance 

,----[ Quote ]
| The installation went smooth without any error. I found that the 
| compiz-fusion features offer more choice of effects compared to it's sibling 
| compiz. And the thing that I am really impressed after read the glxgears, I 
| am getting constantly rate whooping up to 1200+ fps compare to the previous 
| at 140 fps!    



Compiz 0.9.x - Where are we now, and where to from here

,----[ Quote ]
| Anyways, this post is about Compiz 0.9.x (formerly ‘compiz++’). Compiz 0.9.x
| started in december when onestone announced his core rewrite on the mailing
| list. It had features like pluggable output backends, written in c++ (and a
| few nice interfaces that came with it) and other misc bits and pieces. It was
| designed mostly in mind to overcome a lot of the design problems we were
| having, like plugin-plugins and a ridiculous amound of code to manage lists.
| In Janurary, some developers started to toy around with it and at the
| beginning of this February, we announced that compiz++ would become the base
| for the 0.9.x series and the 0.9.x series would features some major reworks.
| We’ve all been quite busy during that time - so we’ve done whatever possible
| to push the branch forwards.

| Have you ever dreamed of Compiz-like effects in Enlightenment 17 ?
| After a good number of previous testing versions, reports, fixes, and
| features added, Elive finally releases the special version with E17 running
| over Compiz (ecomorph).

First Look: Elive E17 Compiz

,----[ Quote ]
| 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)
