    I got around to trying out Berl 0.1.3 today with Fedora Core 6 using the Extras repository. Beryl 0.1.3 is running very nice right now on FC6 -- no problems and some very nice changes.

      I tried Beryl 0.1.3 on Zenwalk 4.0. But it didn't run as smooth as the desktop effects within Fedora Core 6 (AIGLX).


      I've now installed Ubuntu 6.10 and enabled desktop effects with Compiz. Runs a lot smoother than Beryl on my Zenwalk (same machine though).

      What I prefer on Compiz compared to Beryl is the fact that I can keep the window decoration.
