Nvidia + AIGLX + Beryl

I've just tried Beryl v. 0.1.9999.1~0beryl1 and I have to say it is nothing short of amazing. Blows compiz 0.2.2 from Debian official repo (and probably Vista, too ) out of the water. 'Emerald Theme Manager' rocks.

Maybe 'Beryl Settings Manager' is a bit disorganized as of yet. IMHO it still suffers from some serious usability problems, but the sheer amount of options it offers is impressive for a 6-month old project.

Take a look at a review and a short tutorial:

They have debs for Etch:

been using beryl on debian and ubuntu for a while now, most of the effects i disable as the delay with the pretty effects slow me down, but the eye candy is a nice addition :)
