LXer: Beryl: The Cool Linux UI Reviewed
Published at LXer:

To this day, I still have to smile when new Linux users decide to take the plunge because they want the cool looking visual effects that Beryl offers. To some limited degree, I can understand the motivation. The stunning videos on YouTube are certainly compelling to those who have never tried to use the setup themselves. Unfortunately, there are still some valid reasons for sticking with the alternatives for the time being. Let's explore some of the issues that I have found with using Beryl.

One problem I've noticed is some of the visual effect animations aren't that smooth (could be my hardware) and sometimes can become annoying if you're in a "get things done" mood instead of looking for a sexier UI experience. But for beta, it's pretty damn stable and with features way ahead of anything Vista has to offer.


p.s: Screenlets package is also sexy. Check it out if you haven't already.
