Take a look at the video demo at the top of the page. This Linux distro even puts OS X's GUI to shame.
Awesome!!!

Too bad that linux is such a PITA to install & use, but I just might have to play around with this distro . . .

I used the Compiz desktop compositor in Ubuntu and it was very similar to most of those effects. Linux isn't very difficult to set up and use, for those with some experience IMO. The largest hurdle is the number and variety of applications, especially if you come from the Mac side.

IMo anyhow.

Still, very pretty.

That's just about what I figured it would be - a bunch of eye candy that isn't really useful. I'm not saying OS X's GUI is perfect, but I didn't see anything in that video that put it to shame.

Vlad, installing linux now is much better than it used to be. Sound, video and all those mostly work out without any tinkering. Was surprised myself about that too.
