http://www.howtoforge.com

This tutorial shows how you can enable Compiz Fusion on a Fedora 13 GNOME desktop (the system must have a 3D-capable graphics card - I'm using an NVIDIA GeForce 8100 here).

http://www.webupd8.org

If you ever used Google Chrome - and you must have -, then you might have noticed how much vertical space you can gain by removing the window title bar. Yes Google Chrome has a titlebar, but as an extent of the tabs, so that's not conventional titlebar.

http://tombuntu.com

For a long time it has bothered me that Compiz does not seem to run as smoothly as Metacity on my desktop system.

Kernel Log: X server 1.7 delayed; Compiz runs on newer Radeon GPUs; DRBD in kernel soon

http://www.h-online.com

DRBD should make it into the main Linux kernel development tree in 2.6.32.
