Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx 3D Desktop

The purpose of this video is to show how good Ubuntu 10.04 looks like without installing any aditional software, this is out of the box experience. Also, I wanted to show you how good (performance wise) compiz has become, no more hicups or slowdowns. Ubuntu Lucid boots in just 9 seconds on my current PC, a record by itself.

    Interesting, and very suave. I wonder if it would be possible to rotate to another desktop while a full screen game is running (in a seperate screen resoloution).

    Wow, thanks! 😛

    I am total Linux noob though. I just Google what I want to do and presto, ie driver installation!

    People are complaining too much about ATI and Linux. Maybe ATI’s driver is not so advanced as Nvidia’s in Linux, but I found it quite operational. I really don’t want anything more, but as I said, I am a noob! :)

    This video was made in order to be posted as an answer to a local forum, where people are totally against ATI regarding Linux and they always said that they couldn’t even watch a single HD video with Compiz Running.

    Well, I proved them wrong, as I’ve been running like three 720P ones, two flash 720P and one 1080P at the same time!

    That’s all! :)

    Moreover, I come from the era of the PC that we couldn’t even watch a 320X240 video with decent quality and framerate and it’s always fun to see how far things have evolved! 😀

    @Reavenk : Yes, it’s possible, I did it with World Of Warcraft :)

    Fantastic, but sorry, with this wallpaper I couldn’t pay much attention on what you were saying. :)
