Run menu Applications->System Tools->Beryl Settings Manager. Click on Visual Effects on the top bar, then click on Animations in the left pane. The first tab - (Un)Minimize controls the Minimize and Unminimize effects.

XGL is a replacement X server. It is really only still used by SuSE. The better implementation is a modification to the existing X called AIGLX. AIGLX and XGL provide infrastructure, no effects.

Beryl and Compiz are the software that provides the desktop effects. They were originally part of the same code base, but split into two projects. There are many more effects in Beryl, but at this time Compiz is more stable.

There are still many bugs and issues in Beryl, it is beta software (0.2.0). The project is only about 7-8 months old. Expect problems. There are hundreds of demonstrations at Youtube; play with the options to see what you can come up with. Because the software is so new and changing so fast, there are many tutorials (if you Google), but they are all out of date.
