Elementary Theme Getting New Metacity 

,----[ Quote ]
| If you're not using the incredibly awesome 
| eHomosapien metacity chances are you're using 
| the default Elementary metacity. You may be 
| interested to know then that this will be 
| getting a bit of a makeover soon (and you can 
| install it now!)



Metacity Compositing Effects in Ubuntu 8.10

,----[ Quote ]
| Donât have a graphics card capable of running desktop effects with Compiz on
| Ubuntu? By enabling compositing in GNOMEâs default Metacity window manager,
| you get some eye candy and can run applications that require or benefit from
| a compositing window manager. Metacity uses your CPU instead of a graphics
| card, so itâll work on anything - even a virtual machine.


Compositing With Metacity - An Early Look

,----[ Quote ]
| In its current incarnation, the compositing in Metacity is similar in feel
| and function to the compositing used in Xfce; itâs not particularly
| attractive looking, but it is extremely stable and performs well on lower-end
| systems. If youâre after features that only compositing can provide but
| arenât after Compizâ ultra-pretty but ultra-heavy management, you may have
| tried Metacityâs compositing already and been disappointed. However, the new
| version has dramatically stepped up on stability and performance, so once
| youâve got your hands on GNOME 2.24 you may want to consider giving it
| another chance.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
