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."

Stick with compiz

All these new features keep getting added to beryl, yet there is still no theme that looks to my eyes as clean as stock compiz.

Perhaps I'm also too focused on functionality, but compiz does everything worthwhile in a wm (keybindings, put & scale modules) while maintaining a clean appearance. As FC6 has shown, compiz is a perfect base composite wm for a distribution.

Depends if you use Emerald Themes or Heliodor.

I find the themes in Emerald are not very consistant with the Gnome themes they build upon where are Heliodor accelerate your gnome themes.

Personally I like Resilience as a theme and accelerated under Beryl it is great.
