    When faced with a wall of errors and no hope to fix them, remember the following "Programs always do what you tell them to, and seldom what you want them to, but eventually you'll run out of things that can go wrong and it'll just work. and that's the secret to good programming."

    Should I be practicing programming every day? I feel if I don't, I'll get instantly rusty or something.

My friend had a 3D desktop switching cube effect on his Linux Machine using KDE. How can I do that and what is it? Do I need a special video card?

Well as far as I know, no you do not need any special video card, just a normal one but powerful enough :)

You should consider installing Compiz Fusion. It has a lot of nice features. The system requirements aren't high too, so most computers would be able to run it smoothly. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a link on the system requirements, but I've heard about people having only 64mb RAM being able to run it nicely.

Is this similar to the OS X desktop switch cube effect?

I'm not sure. I haven't tried OS X for a long time, and I've never used the effects. I would suggest you to find a video about Compiz Fusion on YouTube, watch it, and then compare it to OS X.

I am running Compiz Fusion on my Ubuntu box. Really great, actually ATI have improved their drivers a lot, I can run it now on my ATI with almost no problems at all.

It has Ubuntu installed, and no, you don't need a new videocard (unless yours is ancient, like 4 megs of memory or something)

the 3D cube effect / functionality is sooo ... coool. Maybe a bit too ... bells and whistle-ish, but still, very freaking cool. I remember the first time I saw one of my coworkers set that up, I was like "holy **" that was awesome!

My friend had a 3D desktop switching cube effect on his Linux Machine using KDE. How can I do that and what is it? Do I need a special video card?

I tried to install the effects and it was not possible becasue my graphics does not support it. I am looking for an update for my graphics and Ram to have the effect. I was hooked to the effect I must say

Can anybody inform me how much of an upgrade I need. How much Ram and Graphics I need to get an effect like that?. Please inform me
