Lightbulb What's the most fancy schmancy Linux desktop setup?


I'm talking all the Compiz effects, animated wallpaper, etc.

I probably couldn't run it on my 7-year-old laptop, so I just wanna see some video of it.

Thanks!

A Youtube search for linux desktop effects turns up some good examples.

Well, my first week of using Linux, I had a lot of fun and recorded this on a laptop which would be about 9 years old - amazingly slick. I took this laptop into work where we only had iMacs and they were blown away by it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfJZ3vaeAps

That's pretty cool! I also noticed the old Chrome logo and want to point it out for some reason?

And I am now thinking, why was I using SongBird for music playback? Then I search and find that and Nightingale which seems similar... sounds like the start of an investigation into obscure music players in Linux!
