Artwork is a feature

There has been a lot of talk about Compiz and Beryl in the Linux community lately and for those who not know what it is, have a look at the Wikipedia article on Compositing window managers. Mark Shuttleworth recently wrote an article about how to make the world embrace free software, and the number one reason that someone will try it it because it looks cool.

It has to be perfect, with snazzy graphic effects from the Composite window managers, beautiful artwork from the community, but one must of course not forget the foundation of what all this must build on – quality software, which is usable for everyone.
