Compiz WORKS!

All I had to add, apart from what I mentioned yesterday was:

Load “extmod”
to the Module section of xorg.conf.

Although others have derided it, I think it is an AWESOME addition to Fedora. It really brings the desktop to the eye candy level of Mac’s OSX. A lot of the eye candy is also extremely functional! I wanted to save this post for a video showing the compiz stuff (it doesn’t really work to show screenshots), but I haven’t been having the best of luck with that. I’ll try again in the next couple of days along with my review.

If I had to make one large complaint it would be that with compiz enabled there is no “send to desktop x” function. So windows have to be dragged across boundaries if you opened them on the wrong desktop.
