In my switch to PCLinuxOS, and with it’s astounding success on my laptop, I attempted to get Compiz Fusion working. For some time, I have had issues with getting my desktop to work with Compiz under Linux, which is something that bothered me since Microsoft Windows Vista had eye-candy that worked, and worked well.
That, has all changed. With one click in the PCLOS Administration Center, I had Compiz up and running. Now I can peel back windows, fly through desktops, and have fun with the transparency. Very cool.
