| Wow, Atlantis now shaping up to look like a real aquarium! Not only are there

| illegal not to post a screenshot...  


KDE 4: Plasma drag&drop, Digikam multiple storages

| KDE 4 will be released in the next months, and most of the developers focus 
| on polishing. At the same time, the big 3rd party KDE applications are ported 
| to KDE 4.  


Linux has gotten very pretty.



Compiz Fusion 0.5.2 - Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Compiz Fusion is certainly bringing some of the more exciting features found 
| on any computing platform to the Linux desktop. With their development 0.5.2 
| release there’s just a whole lot more to get excited about. Widgets will most 
| likely become insanely popular and should quickly see growth of new third  
| party applications for that plugin. “Shift Switcher” is an absolutely great 
| way to manage all your active windows and there’s even a Cover Flow like 
| ability to flip through those active windows. “Expo” is an exciting new way 
| to view all your virtual desktops on one screen. Simply stated, whenever your 
| favorite Linux distro releases their next big release, expect to see Compiz 
| Fusion bundled with it and prepare to be impressed. Now that I have used 
| Compiz Fusion extensively, going back to a regular 2D desktop is just 
| something I’m not willing to do. Nice job Compiz Fusion.          


Largo still loves Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Largo system administrator Dave Richards and his coworkers are excited about 
| bringing the 3-D Compiz-Fusion desktop to Largo. They currently have about 30 
| users testing it, and other city employees who have seen the demo desktops 
| are begging to have it available on their accounts, too, so a citywide 
| rollout is only a matter of time.
