Vista Aero: Linux Is Eating Your Lunch

Take a look at this screengrab from an AMD machine running Linux. What are we seeing? Wobbly, transparent windows, hot UI effects, an amazing 3D task switcher, and enough eye-candy to make Vista Ultimate look like Midnight Commander.

I’m not saying we all go out and pick up a copy of Ubuntu, but maybe that’s actually what I’m saying. What is this machine running? An older GeForce card, a fairly fast processor, and Ubuntu Edgy Eft with Beryl 0.1.3 Window Manager.
