Compiz Cylinder Effect, more OS fanboying | Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

Years ago, when I made the permanent switch from Apple OS X to Ubuntu Linux, the most difficult part was living without two of the tools (non-Apple ones) that made using a Mac so much more tolerable: Quicksilver and Growl. Now that their equivalents on Linux have reached a point of relative maturity that makes that easier to bear, I realize that there are many, many, many more tools on Linux that I just couldn't live without, if I ever had to switch back (at gunpoint).

Virtual Desktops in Cylinder

The most pervasive of these in my everyday workflow is Compiz-Fusion, which is not only the sexiest eye-candy available on any OS, but has single-handedly changed the way I manage the workflow on my computer. The new cylinder-desktop plugin only pushes the boundaries further.
