- KDE vs. Gnome by A.Y. Siu
One of the most common questions people new to Linux ask is "Should I use KDE or Gnome?" Unfortunately, the answers are usually useless--anything from "Just try each one to see what works for you" to "Gnome is much better." That said, selecting a desktop environment should probably be one of the last things you worry about as a Linux "newbie." Hardware detection, email set-up, etc. are far more important to day-to-day functioning than your desktop environment. It's sort of like just learning how to ski and worrying about the color of your skis--learn how to ski first! Also, most versions (or distributions) of Linux have a default desktop environment (for example, Blag and Ubuntu default to Gnome, and Mepis and PCLinuxOS default to KDE)

- Compiz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Compiz is one of the first compositing window managers for the X Window System that is able to take advantage of OpenGL-acceleration. The integration allows it to perform compositing effects in window management, such as a minimization effect and a cube workspace. Compiz conforms to the ICCCM standard and as such can substitute for the default Metacity in GNOME or KWin in KDE. Compiz brings some of the features found in competitors, such as Exposé in Apple's Mac OS X and a new Alt-Tab application-switcher, similar to the one found in Microsoft's Windows Vista.
