Compiz Fusion : An Unparalleled 3D Environment

Filed under
Software

Operating System has advanced much from what we used to see/use in 90's . Apple was the first to bring 3D Desktop and several eye catching effect to the user with its OSX based Operating System. But with its limited hardware support OSX is still a mystery for most of users.... Microsoft soon follow the trail as they released their most successful OS Windows XP. Though by default Windows XP doesn't have 3D effects , it provides a handful of useful GUI tools to ease the use of work .. But then all these are heavily paid Operating System.. Seeing these Advancment Linux started advancing and a vary rapid rate, being an Open Source Software Libre people contribute much and within no time Linux surpassed both of them in terms of Eye Candy and Visual Appeal.

Earlier there were two 3D Composite Manager for Linux namely Beryl and Compiz , both provided plethora of 3D effects .. Compiz Fusion is the result of a merge between the well-known Beryl composite window manager and Compiz Extras, a community set of improvements to the Compiz composite window manager. Compiz Fusion aims to provide an easy and fun-to-use windowed environment, allowing use of the graphics hardware to render each individual window and the entire screen, to provide some impressive effects, speed and usefulness.

If you guys think Mac OSX with its Aqua Interface and MS Windows Vista with its Aero interface is the best looking Operating System , then you are sadly mistaken ! The freedom and flexibility Compiz Fusion provides is beyond imagination..

When I presented my Desktop to my friends they think its a part of Coding , and people { minority who still don't know about Linux and Compiz Fuison} over Internet might be thinking how those kind of stuff are possible ? Even few advance Windows user might have inception that Compiz Fusion is very tough to use or we have to Compile it blah blah blah..

If you are among those guys then this “Thread is dedicated for you” ..Here I'll Review Compiz Fusion and all its features in lay mans language.
