Messing with Linux… again…

A few days ago I had to wipe my windows computer due to a nasty trojan horse (that’s what happens when you don’t boot/update your computer for 2 months and check your email while downloading updates). I took the oportunity to install Ubuntu with the Compiz XGL enhancements (see video below, warning: cheezy loud music when you hit play). I haven’t tinkered with a computer at the os level in some time. I used to spend hours at night customizing the appearance of my OS… every OS: Macintosh, Windows, and Linux. The first really crazy window manager I tried for Linux was Enlightenment. Ubutnu with compiz and XGL blows it out of the water. I’m still going to install Windows on another partition so I can test code and play games occasionally, but I think I’ll be using Ubuntu for a while. It’s by far the easiest desktop Linux install I’ve every tried (yes, even easier than Knoppix). Check it out if you have a chance!
