    What's the best distro/window manager for eye candy (or customization)?


    Okay, I'm talking about, like the effects achieved by Compiz on Ubuntu, but then I like the overall feel of KDE (Kubuntu). So, is there a way to get Compiz to run on KDE, if so, how. Or, is there a better distro or window manager to make my PC look awesome? I tried out Enlightenment, but I didn't get it customized (how would I do that?). Any suggestions are welcome, and thanks.

    Sabayon used to be very eye candy oriented, but I've not used it lately so don't know what it looks like right now:

    Documentation should be a place to start to learn to customize Enlightenment.
    Everything for your Enlightenment Desktop - E17-Stuff.org shows what some people have done with it.

    pretty sure Compize runs on KDE for a couple of years now. Don't remember the first version...

    1. Compize must be installed.

    2. Start Menu/System/Desktop effects - to set it up.

    finally - hw to brag about - but next year it will look pitifully quaint:
