smooth... but tricky

This one just blew me away... I have been following the whole cairo, glitz, accelerate the window manager or X thing... and then, all of a sudden this! and it just works! no all-the-time-crashing alpha stage software that just could be nice! I think this is a major jump fordward for linux in it's conquest of the dektop!

Just one funny thing I have to report.. afer running the live-cd i rebooted into (really dull looking) windows and my network card just would not work anymore! tried booting back to Kororaa and there it was working again... tried a lot ot ofther things until I found out the cd was completely blocking my network card during the halt process... had to boot to Kororaa and then switch off the computer using the power switch to get the card running again!

I think the problem is nForce4 LAN with older LAN nforce kernel driver
