Windows Months go, I reviewed Windows Vista, and concluded: "All in all, I am impressed by Windows Vista [...]. Windows Vista is better than XP, and definitely more than just an improved look as many say." After 5 months of usage, it is time to put that statement into perspective.

Beryl Performance

It is important to note that Ubuntu's performance in combination with Beryl was not exactly stellar either on the desktop machine. All the effects had a delay and were jittery. Note that I have yet to try running Beryl 0.2-final (I only ran the test versions of 0.2) on this machine.

Slow and jittery with an NVIDIA 6200 card? Sounds suspicious. Perhaps you haven't yet disabled Beryl's horribly broken internal limiter -- uncheck "Detect Refresh Rate" in General Options and set "Refresh Rate" as far as the slider will go. Note, unlike some other guides to do this, I would highly suggest keeping "Sync to VBlank" checked.

That is weird.

Compiz works fine on my Radeon 7200 (thank you open source ATI drivers, out of the box) which is six years old. Beryl works amazing (except for no water effect) on my 5 year old Geforce Ti 4200, even with Blur enabled when moving Windows.

For Eugenia's Ati Radeon x300, I wonder if she used the open source drivers or fglrx (only XGL)?
