    here is your answer.
    Compiz Fusion is a windows manager, like explorer and finder, except that CF is a X-Windows manager while explorer is not (forget which kind). which means, no windows support unless you want to port all that.

    IMO: Wobbly windows is gay

    Wobbly windows is a waste of resources (Along with the stupid cube).

    You should learn to code for Microsoft's OS then. Or, y'know, you could try dual booting with Ubuntu and actually try to learn a little bit. It's really not hard to set it up and it has made vast improvements to set up different hardware configurations.

    You shouldn't be that closed to the option of Ubuntu, ESPECIALLY if you're so into the graphical aspects of the OS. You can do so many things in Ubuntu that you can't do in Vista. What's even better, you can do more eye candy things in Ubuntu with a weaker video card than in Vista. Case and point: Intel's 915 chipset can't even run Vista's Aero theme, but it can do 90% of all the Compiz Fusion effects without a sweat.

    Oh, and one more thing. It's pretty damn ironic that you refuse to use Ubuntu when your avatar is Tux, the Linux mascot [​IMG]

    if linux had native gaming support, I'd drop windows, only because Ubuntu is a crackhore of eyecandy and tweaks/customizing! I like vista alot, don't see any of these "problems" people speak of. weird...

    Agreed. I've had Vista running on 5 different PC's, all from different generations, and I never had problems with it. I think that the problems aren't caused as much by the OS as they are by the user him/herself. Like that saying goes: A computer will work only as well as the user can control it.

    Not the way he means it. For example, you can't just insert a CD or DVD and install WoW or Half Life or Fallout 3. You would have to install Wine first, and then begin installing the game.

    I never said there weren't other ones. Just the more popular titles won't have native support like ones that have Linux-ready binaries, like some Unreal Tournaments, Soldier of Fortune 2, etc.

    I thought UT came with a linux installer on the CD? being one of the few games that does.

    the are some really fun linux games though, like urban terror
