Good point. Anyways - it feels much more realistic than XGL/Compiz
combo. More future-oriented. It's both eye-candy and can improve a
real work - for example easier to look photos.

We shouldn't be talking about subjective merits and demerits of lg3d,
compiz/beryl, the thing is the technology is out there and hardware
that can run it is available, whether anyone likes it or not, they are
the technologies of the future.

We must do whatever to promote it and get it in the mainstream distros
even while they are experimental. Extra rpms on openSUSE build service
would be great if anyone from LG3D project is willing to take that
task on.

Cheers
