I run Kubuntu 6.10 with KDE 3.5.5 and the latest Beryl snapshot (v.0.1.3) on my Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop.

1700 Mhz Centrino, 512 MB RAM, 256 MB Ati Radeon 9600 (ati drivers). I use Aiglx of course.

The CPU load with cube transperacy is at about 30 percent during the animation and at about 10 percent the rest of the time.

To use cube transperacy you'll need a recent beryl version (- look here http://3v1n0.tuxfamily.org/dists/edgy/beryl-svn/ )

Peace ;)

All very cute, but the sooner the bloom is off the rose and people realize stuff like this is just a gimmick and has no useful purpose on a computing platform the better.

The utter waste of resources would be bad enough. 30% of your cpu power gone, poof. But the fact that you can't get any real work done or even have a good game experience because of the distraction simply adds insult to injury.

Color me unimpressed.
