Filed under
Ubuntu

appscout: One of the first things my boyfriend and I wanted to check out on our new Dell Inspiron with Ubuntu was installing Compiz Fusion, which gives your Ubuntu system really cool 3-D desktop effects. Desktop effects are an "experimental feature" in Ubuntu, meaning that they may not work with all computers and could cause your system to, well, act up. Sure enough, that's what happened to us.
