Graphics, User Interfaces We have heard a lot lately about projects aimed at bringing all that eye candy of operating systems such as OS X to the Linux world. Projects such as Xgl, Enlightenment, and others have given us a glimpse of what's coming, but what can you do to enjoy a taste of some of the future… today?

"I'd rather have the most minimalistic GUI possible so that I can get some work done rather than ooh and ah about how pretty all the frivolous claptrap is."

That's great for you. WTF is the point of posting this in a thread about linux eye candy? To prove that you are uber-31337? To belittle people who *like* eyecandy? Why not embrace the fact that with Linux you absolutely have a choice? Or were you just trolling?

uber-31337 sounds right.

People feel the need to comment in every story they have a thought on, even if it's trolling or not constructive at all.

It's like all the MS stories that anti-MS peopl feel the need to comment in, even if the story is about something GOOD MS is doing/did. Or the Opera stories Firefox fanboys comment on, or the other way around.

I REALLY wish there was a way to tag a rating, instead of just -1/+1. Like Off-topic, trolling, whatever. Kinda like Slashdot, but more simple.
