X11, Window Managers "Beryl 0.2.0 will be released shortly and I spent time the last week testing out Beryl 0.2.0 RC2 on Kubuntu's Edgy Eft. The improvements found in 0.2.0 are simply amazing. Improvements in usability features, improvements in the pure 3D eye candy, and even the Beryl Settings Manager has been improved (the layout has become much more logically laid out). As you read through this preview of Beryl 0.2.0 and see some of the screenshots, I think you will get a firm grasp on how impressive Beryl can be. Basically, Beryl makes OS X and Vista look old and antiquated."

Scrolling and 3D

I've noticed, that all 3D and 2.5D solutions are quite bad with scrolling performance. Maybe it is just my hardware, but I doubt that. Vista, BTW, does not sacrifices the scrolling performance to 3D. It is quite important to have scrolling fast, because it is one of most frequent and important UI operations. Editors, browsers, all use scrolling heavily, but 3D is just a candy, isn't it?
