I donâ€™t want to be over dramatic, but this could not have come at a better time. The 3d desktop is the first thing to grab the general publicâ€™s imagination and push people into trying out Linux. Compiz and Beryl provide an experience you really canâ€™t get on Windows or Mac. There is an exciting Wild West feel to the projects. As things mature, this will be what brings Linux to the mainstream. The passion everyone involved feels may look like a negative. It is the projectâ€™s greatest strength.
UPDATE: seems it is happening according to this.
