3D Desktop's

Posted at 08:13 on Sat, 18th November 2006 in linux.

Maybe I have been a bit slow to be facinated by all of this 3D desktop stuff, but I came across a video on YouTube (after doing a random search for Linux) demonstrating Linux's 3D desktop capabilities and a touch screen.

What's quite cool indeed is the virtual desktop's and the switching between these. Apparently this is all done using XGL..

Microsoft's Vista has similar sorts of eye catching desktop acrobatics (see this vista demo), but it's hardware requirements, are through the roof. The Linux alternative can run on a P3, without a problem..

Anyway.. I'm gonna try set this up with a Linux varient, haven't decided which distro yet, on my new laptop when it comes. Hopefully it's not too challenging ;)
