Linux Compiz Effects

I have moved from being a dedicated Microsoft Windows user, into a fanatic Mac OS X addict.

My latest spare time sponge is Linux. In particular the SuSE Open Source desktop operating system. The main reason for this switch is the jaw-dropping effects available with my NVIDIA graphics card.

I tried installing Fedora Core 6 but compared to SuSE 10.1 it just did not have the kind of feel and all-round satisfaction that SuSE gives.

If you use SuSE and have a compatible graphics card, Christmas has come early. For an introduction on the effects, using the XGL features you can visit Check for your graphics card before trying to set this up

Another good read is at

Will post back some more after further testing.
