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."

Let me add that I'm using beryl on a NOT accelerated ATI driver (the default radeon one), on a Pentium M 1.7GHz (single core), and rarely goes over 2-5% during animations (normally it stays at 0). Since my cpu is mostly idle anyway it's a fair bargain ;)

Sure, during yum updates and compiles animations can get slow, but X would, too, without beryl.

Then there was something seriously wrong, as i haven't seen a single smooth animation during the whole time of beryl testing...
