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.

​No reboot patching comes to Linux 4.0

One reason to love Linux on your servers or in your data-center is that you so seldom needed to reboot it. True, critical patches require a reboot, but you could go months without rebooting. Now, with the latest changes to the Linux kernel you may be able to go years between reboots. Read more

Linux 4.0-rc2

So rc2 missed the usual Sunday afternoon timing, because I spent most of the weekend debugging an issue that happened on an old Mac Mini I have around, and I hate making even early -rc releases with problems on machines that I have direct access to. Even if it only affected old machines that actual developers are unlikely to have or at least use. Today I got the patch from Daniel Vetter to fix it, so instead of doing a Sunday evening rc2, it's a Tuesday morning one. Go get it. It works better for the delay. Other than that little one-liner i915 fix? Not much, actually. It's been a very quiet week, for being this early in the release process. Sure, 3.19-rc2 was even smaller, so it continues a trend, but that was the xmas week. I hope this low volume is just because the 4.0 merge window itself was somewhat calmer than most recent releases. But I suspect the real reason is that the driver and networking trees from GregKH and davem are pending, and didn't make rc2. We'll see. Anyway, the shortlog is appended, and testing is appreciated, Linus Read more
