I'm still confused what Beryl is in relation to XGL. Is it a source fork? Is it more stable? What gives?
Can I use Metacity or do I still have to use Compiz for the nifty effects? (some of which are very useful)

I've fallen out of the XGL loop. I've been waiting for XGL to go stable in Portage, should I be looking for Beryl instead now?

/me runs off to the Gentoo wiki...

XGL is OpenGL acceleration for X, you need it to run Beryl (there's also Aiglx which provides OpenGL acceleration, you can use it instead of XGL). Beryl is fork of Compiz. Metacity is GNOME's window manager, you can use Beryl instead of it.

Okay, I have a new wallpaper now, but I think it's just so stupid that I shouldn't post it, not to mention the fact that it gives away (part of) my real name. X_X

Here's mine. Btw, the wallpaper I'm using is also the background image for the logon screen, so transition is flawless... :P

Welcome to the forums. Nice Midna wallpaper, by the way.

Do note the astonishing 10-digit LCD display, the literal dozens of buttons. It's a total hax0rs desktop. Nobody can step. Nobody.
