Novell and Ximian LinuxEdge has posted the videos of the presentation of Novell Desktop Linux 10 by Nat Friedman. "A preview of Novell Linux Desktop 10 was shown to an audience at the Solutions Linux conference this week. We have a selection of videos which display a variety of amazing effects through the use of XGL, including transparency, wobbling windows, a 3D cube for desktop switching, and a task switcher which displays a preview of windows."

I don't know what distro you're using, or what graphics card for that matter, but you might want to try Suse. Its "experimental" ATI OpenGL rendering (an option in Sax2, the X configuration frontend) did wonders for my X rendering responsiveness, where distros like Xandros and Linspire had failed horribly, and even Ubuntu wasn't quite as fast. I think it's got good nVidia drivers built in, too.
