Can't wait to try this out.

It worked like a charm. The windows are very nice.

Negatives:

  • Breaks Twinview dualscreen with Nvidia (it merges all monitors into one long picture)

  • Remote Desktop window doesn't play well with compriz (Need to change to use the default color depth)


I rebooted and found that the Lock Screen and screensaver worked again.

Cool video demonstration. I'm hooked :)
