XGL and Compiz work with ATi now. At least, more than they did a month ago, IIRC.

It still doesn't work on my inspiron 5150 which has an mobility radeon 9000. But it works on my desktop with a 7800GT.

Oh fvck you. You can actually get Compiz and XGL to work. I can't. ATI cards just don't work well. It's also because I have a 9000 series which makes things even worse because the OpenGL is just broken in the ATI driver.

Mine
XGL works with ATI with minor problems. My friend has it (Radeon 9800 PRO). The only problem he has is that it freezes when he logs off. Starting multiple sessions is also bugged out, but these are non-standard scenarios. ATI users get AIGLX (more a Xorg extension) and NVIDIA still doesn't have support for that. Run compiz under AIGLX.

What theme is that? Is it downloadable somewhere, or has MS shut it down? It looks great!
