“There’s no shortage of tools to improve the Linux desktop. But
of the many available, a few will actually transform the way you
work, says Jack Wallen.
“Anyone who has tried the desktop offered by the more recent
Linux distributions will know just how good it is. Not only is the
default desktop beautiful, it also allows you to add enhancements.
From tools that offer better graphics to ones that make your work
more efficient, you can expand the Linux desktop to include just
about anything you want.
“You may know or use some of these tools — but if you find
one listed that you haven’t tried, install it and let us know what
Compiz is to the Linux desktop as HD is to the world of television.
Is it necessary? Not at all. Will it enhance your experience?
