Click ‘MORE’ Please n Read… This is Xgl/Compiz(now known as Beryl Project) running on my secondary comp which is an old (2002) dell with 2.4 ghz P4 proc, Nvidia 6600 GT gfx card, and only 512 megs of RAM. The music is Sidology Ep 2: Trinity, By Machinae Supremacy. This Linux install was SuSE 10.1 and I now use Sabayon Linux. Which you can get here: www.sabayonlinux.org Three versions include Mini CD install, Full x86 32bit install and Full x86 64bit install DVDs! The theme is a custom theme; which unfortunately I lost when my main hardrive died on me. However, you can get the wallpaper I used from my box.net account here: www.box.net A few other cool backgrounds here: www.box.net www.box.net The original backgrounds I downloaded from www.caedes.net; a great site which has many many more awesome backgrounds. The cubecaps are from art.gnome.org. Go here for ‘Powered by Free Software’ cubecap (this one was downscaled from the original using gimp to 1280×1024 to work with my res) art.gnome.org and here for ‘Linux – Rided The Wave’ cubecap. art.gnome.org The skydome can be found here. It, along with several of the others below, I made myself by splicing a mirrored version of the original and modifying it slightly so the two sides don’t appear as perfect replicas of each other. www.box.net A couple other cool skydomes: www.box.net www.box.net www.box.net enjoy 😀
