Ubuntu 7.10, a.k.a. Gutsy Gibbon, on O'Reilly's ONLamp site.
"Ubuntu 7.10 adds highly attractive user interface elements with the inclusion of Compiz Fusion technology. This is instantly cool demo-ware. If you want to get a sense of what this functionality can do, visit Google Video and you will find impressively choreographed demonstrations by virtuosos of Compiz Fusion demonstrating their jazz of "Advanced Desktop Effects."
Not only do these interface improvements look nice, but they can also help you productively manage multiple desktops and workspaces with numerous 3D effects. These have been wish list items for some time, and they have finally arrived. These effects require newer video cards for you to get the full benefit, but they degrade gracefully on older hardware lacking the required graphics horsepower.
