Great video of XGL + Compiz window manager

Compiz, the OpenGL window/composite manager, has been released following David Reveman's talk at XDevconf yesterday.

"Compiz is an OpenGL compositing manager that use GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap for binding redirected top-level windows to texture objects. It has a flexible plug-in system and it is designed to run well on most graphics hardware."

Also, a new video demonstrating Compiz on XGL is now online. The video displays numerous previously unseen effects such as 3D objects on the desktop and animated backgrounds.
very cool:
