Make Linux look awesome!

| Adding eye candy should never be about purely 
| cosmetic changes. Instead, it should enhance 
| the usability of the desktop and make the 
| average session more productive and more 
| streamlined. We're going to show you how to do 
| just this, and in the process we'll help you 
| turn your Linux desktop into the envy of your 
| proprietary OS-loving friends.


An interesting look at the Linux CLI-GUI debate once more.

,----[ Quote ]
| I believe both have a role to play in helping 
| an end user make the most of their system. I 
| don't however, believe a person's inability to 
| use the CLI actually makes them dumb. Neither 
| do I believe that you'd be diminishing your 
| status by using point and click to get things 
| done for the sheer reason that you're a CLI 
| guru. If Linux is actually going to go anywhere 
| in the future, the sometimes fundamental stance 
| people take on the issue of CLI vrs GUI ought 
| to be discouraged.



The Road to Compiz++ Part One: Plugin-Plugins

,----[ Quote ]
| So from now until we finally make a Compiz
| 0.9.0 beta release I will be doing some short
| blog posts on what the differences between
| Compiz 0.8 and Compiz 0.9 are for both users
| and developers. Compiz 0.9 is a complete re-
| thinking of Compiz 0.8. Itâs like KDE4 was to
| KDE3. Totally new frameworks. Totally new
| buildsystem. Totally new API. Itâs supposed to
| clear the ground from major architectural flaws
| that were in older versions of compiz to make
| development far easier and faster even for
| future version of compiz.


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 âcompiz++â). 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.
| Weâve all been quite busy during that time - so weâve done whatever possible
| to push the branch forwards.

| core part was released on Sunday, March 1st. This release is the result of
