I love it!
Yesh, it is quite amazing what they've achieved.
People say it's bloated, they don't realise how unbelievably configurable it is.
Been a while since I've been using it though, my current distro is a bitch when it comes to hardware acceleration with non-non-free drivers (since I know for a fact that beryl runs excellently with free drivers on a radeon 9600 card, I'll switch distro faster than I'll install the non-free drivers).

Ya gonna give us your own screenshot Clarity?
I can't really capture it's greatness in a screenshot, but here's one
going to throw up, definitely shit ill play with when i get a new PC. what are the best lines of newer (DX 10 I know thats for windows) cards and their hardware support for linux? i remember back in the day that nvidia was really good with their linux support
I can't give advice on an exact models, but nVidia still has better Linux support. I have an ATi X1900XTX, and everything is silky smooth.
For DX10, I believe the nVidia 8800 model has/will have support for it.
No one else is running Beryl/Compiz?
I run Novell's Deksktop Linux (based on Suse) and it has that feature, didn't know it was it's own app. the Novell guy made it sound like it was something specific to Novell's Linux. To be honest I shut all that special effect shit off, same in XP. I'm more of a Debian guy.
what distro are u using clarity? did you have to install it? or did it come preloaded?
I'm using Ubuntu. I had to manually install it. Sabayon comes with Beryl preloaded, and should work well for an nVidia card.
awesome. id like to install it tho...its way more gratifying.
