Compiz

Compiz adalah window manager dan komposit manager untuk linux. Proyek Compiz dimulai tahun lalu oleh David Reveman dari Novell. Nama compiz sendiri diambil dari kata composite.

Window manager adalah program yang berperan dalam mengatur tampilan jendela aplikasi dan dialog. Sedangkan komposit manager berperan dalam menggabungkan image menjadi tampilan yang akhirnya muncul di desktop kita.

Compiz adalah gabungan dari window manager dan komposit manager yang bekerja menggunakan OpenGL untuk rendering. Compiz memanfaatkan akselerasi 3D dari kartu grafis kamu untuk menghasilkan efek-efek yang memukau, yang tidak ada pada window manager biasa.

Compiz dapat berjalan dengan baik pada kebanyakan kartu grafis dengan spesifikasi standar. Saat ini yang paling didukung adalah kartu grafis dari intel (karena adanya dukungan driver linux yang baik). Yup, itu lho kartu grafis untuk kebanyakan laptop.

Beberapa fitur dari Compiz:

• Desktop cube
• Wobbly windows
• Switcher with preview
• Scale windows
• Water effects
• Zoom desktop

If you love pretty graphics, then sure you’ll love to put some nice wallpaper on your desktop. Yeah i know some people will think this as not important at all. They’re just want to do their stuff, do some work and then go outside to Get a Life.

The fact is that not everybody do care about their desktop wallpapers. I know someone who is still using that default windows XP bliss wallpaper, never intended to–and not allowed you–to change it, although it’s been two and half years… after he installed his XP.

There are some great number of wallpaper collection site outside there, but most of them are just crap useless because of the small-resolution or just because of the annoyingly choose of color, a.ka. horrible taste. :p

So where do you find some nice and hi-resolution wallpapers? Google it..

No. just kidding.

If you love some crisp and vivid color wallpaper then you gonna like this: the collection of just amazing nature wallpapers:
