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."

It's not about the number of features. It's about having the right features (in the right place). I haven't checked Beryl, so I'm not going to say if it's better or worse. Arguing it makes OS X and Vista old and atiquated because of number of features, visually impressive features and most configurable features...

Some people just don't like or don't have the time to tweak those features. They just want what I said: the right features in the right place.

Even Microsoft pretends to understand that on their new version of its feature-overbloaten office package.

I do agree with you there. although it is kinda the thing with Linux users many of us want ever option possible and thats not true with most Windows/OSX users they just want it to do what they want and thats all. Most of them are not even aware of half the Power of the software they use cause the never saw the need to use it.
