Keep in mind that Aqua was designed from the ground up so the effects are integrated and appear more subtle. I've never felt the desire to disable any OS X UI features, while Compiz / Beryl are simply addon's for existing desktop environments, so they need to be attention-getting and impressive. Now...

I've played around with Compiz/Beryl on Debian, Fedora, and Ubuntu. I usually wind up disabling it after 10-15 minutes of usage, as the current implementations fail at adding functionality and the performance hit on the hardware (Core 2 Duo-class processor + 7900GT ) can really be felt.

Never heard the term FOSS until this post. Learn something new at Nekochan almost every day.

Re: Why has recent F/OSS become so hard to build?

I've just spent a day or two trying to compile some of the recent mid-level F/OSS GUI toolkit software and I've gotten only a little beyond nowhere... To be fair, I am using the MIPSpro compiler, known for it's pedanic nature, on a lowly 400Mhz O2 - so the waiting hasn't improved my mood much - but...

Re: Nice new Powermacs

quad core, and a real graphics card... nice. http://www.apple.com/powermac/ I guess I'll have to wait for the intel macs for a faster powerbook though. :( Shame I don't have $3,299.00 sitting about. And that 6600 PCI-E is still _way_ under powered for a three-thousand dollar plus system. :roll:

A well administered Linux box, or other *NIX box can be as secure as most BSD machines. I guess I was referring to "out-of-the-box" security. So yeah, RMS et al may be a pain in the ass. But guess what there is a reason you can now use GCC and the GNU toolchain and build a nice system around it. An...

http://www.apple.com/ipodnano/ Too many profits, no guys?!!! :) I dunno - the nano is pretty bad-ass: - 14+ hours of battery life - color LCD panel - half-inch thick - weighs something like 4 ounces - still under $300.00 I might purchase one for my next iPod - in fact, I was planning on purchasing ...

Well they returned the G5 to me without doing anything to it. Still kernel panics and locks up randomly. So back it went this morning. This time they told me they'll replace the logic board and/or the CPUs. I'd fight for a complete replacement - every-time I browse an Apple forum I read about some ...
