Hi,the best thing i found on Linux/Ubuntu is that are very fun to work, any aspect can be change to meat or needs. So today i will put some pictures of my desktop, but first let me tell the specs of my laptop:
Processor - Intel Celeron M 1.5Ghz
Graphics - Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 up to 128 MB (shared)
Memory - 1GB
Laptop model Compaq Presario v4305ea
this is a basic specs for a laptop and if you got it with vista no fancy effects for you, but on Linux | Ubuntu on my case you can ave fancy "Eyecandy" effects on this low specs
My Eyecandy desktop Ubuntu | Gnome.
My desktop cube using Compiz Fusion.
My Shift Switcher.
Fire on screen.
This are some of the examples that with a low spec PC and free OS you can ave Eyecandy .
