I hope that this will also bring them more support from big companies like Redhat or IBM, plus the Ubuntu's Canonical, of course.

I am using Compiz in Fedora, have tried Beryl a little, but sometimes I just have to turn off the effects for sake of some Java-based sofware, like Zend Studio.

But I like the cube, the expose, and other things. I also use them to attract the kids (my own and others). They like it and they never saw anything like that on Windows :-) Everybody said "wow" for Linux :-)
