Compiz Fusion, for those of you who don’t know, is a Window Manager that is included by default with Ubuntu Linux and many other distributions of Linux. Using your computer 3D graphics card, it renders your desktop in a more lively environment, giving you wobbly windows, dazzling special effect animations, and much more ability to customize the aesthetic look and feel of your computer to your hearts content.
Recently, the developers behind Compiz Fusion have started to take the concept of “head-tracking” into consideration of its feature set. This would give the user an even more mesmerizing and lifelike view of the desktop. Rather than talk about what could be done, I’ll let your imagination fill in the blanks. And if you watch the video below to the end, you’ll not need any further fuel for that imagination to go wild.
