Lets make it a more detailed information desk………Beryl effects on Linux Ubuntu Edgy Eft. So here is linux but not like normal old version . This is Ubuntu Beryl version of linux, i really started thinking who did this OS and have to check that man. Lets stop dreaming of better GUI OS and have the best one which is already there, ofcourse LINUX………….:).
As many ppl here asked about how is Beryl effect proposed,
here is the forum of the site where the beryl-project actually started – http://forum.beryl-project.org/
And here is the comment about what is Beryl,
Beryl 0.2.0 Release:
Author-nesl247, ” Beryl 0.2.0 is a complete overhaul of Beryl. The last stable release 0.1, featured a very fun, and eye-candy based compositing window manager. However, since it’s release, many parts of beryl have been rewritten, replaced, or simply dropped. The Beryl team has put in numerous hours to bring you this release. It’s filled with fun, eye-candy, better user support, new features, and most of all, stability. While Beryl has had numerous developer releases, known by their 0.1.X versions, 0.2.0 has been throughly tested by many more users.
As Beryl has become more well known, our userbase has expanded exponentially. Because of this, we’ve had more bug reports than ever. So thank you to all of you who have helped us on this path. And thank you to all of those who have made Beryl possible.
During the last year, Beryl has gone through a number of incidents. Users have argued about Beryl and Compiz for a long time now. With this release, Beryl has taken a giant step apart from Compiz. While some things are similar, which is inevitable in a fork, many things are not. We at Beryl believe that starting with the 0.3 development phase, many more things will be come clearer in regards to Beryl. We are setting our focus on organization, improving user relations, making the software more bug free, and overall more fun for you!
So without further ado, I give you Beryl 0.2.0!

– The Beryl Team “

I am really sorry guys iam too late to inform this, but anyway here it is, beryl eft have been suppressed due to some technical issues, finally an end to beryl eft, YES, it is true, but not to worry guys “there is always a beginning from an end”, the beryl project has been merged with COMPIZ FUSION and the projects are continued with compiz fusion.
