laptops running 3d and screenshots please


I am running my 3rd toshiba= A55 S1063 laptop.

using kde b/c of its 3d desktop
virtualbox and DSL and soon to be windows 98/2000 ME (b/c vista needs way too much space, and is junk)

my screenshots has bridged a few friends to at least try linux, and hopefully this will bring others to see the power of this fully functional battle station (starwars, couldnt resist).

Sorry, can't help ya.

All of my boxes run Fluxbox, as I'm obsessed with squeezing every last bit of performance out of the operating system that I can.

I do, however, get a cool 3D effect if I take out one of my contacts and then look at the screen.

Like Savet, I use Fluxbox, but I do have the 3ddesktop utility and can have the same cube, carousel or strip effects when switching workspaces.
