Last time I checked the default Remote Desktop utility (vino) was
still broken?  Nothing but a frozen screen anyhow.

I use desktop effects as a propaganda piece for Linux, works great!
But even with my newer Intel 965/3000 it's a big sluggish.  A 7900GT
Nvidia puts the hurtin on it though :D

I vote for keeping it super easy to enable, but off.

Even with the commercial drivers, it is damned hard to get working correctly. (The nvidia config script needs a "turn it all on" option.)

I need to see how compiz-fusion handles configuration. Beryl, you can have it loaded and have the window manager set to something non-beryl. (Very nice when you need OpenGL for other things.) I am wondering if that is an option in the "new" version.
