| Mouse Gesturing
| Mousegestures allows you assign a mouse gesture to any plugin action that you
| want. As long as the action can be called by compiz (I.e., rotate_left_key,
| plugin: rotate would be a good one), you can call it by doing a series of
| mousegestures while holding down the button. You can have up to 32 different
| mouse movements per-gesture which can make up to just less than 8 billion
| gestures! It’s a little tricky to configure, but here is the run-down of how
| it works.

| If the Linux community wants to wipe Windows and Mac out of the OS business
| all they need to do in focus all of their collective efforts on developing
| Compiz. With the combine intelligence of hundreds of thousands of nerds we
| could develop the most pimped out windows management system known to mankind.
| The kids don’t want stability, they want an OS w/ rims that spin. * *

| Although I do not think that people would be wearing funny glasses all day
| long to work on their PC, possibilities this plugin presents are quite
| exciting for gamers and everyone wanting to show off the ‘real’ 3D desktop. *

Episode III

| As a special treat, I present episode III of FusionCast. It's a no-talking
| episode, but it features Freescale, Shelf, and Freewins, and a few less known *
| features of these three new(ish) plugins.

Fear and Loathing in Cupertino

| It wasn't until later, giving the same presentation at Linux World that
| I'd missed giving at the Apple show, that I realized that Apple were
| scared of the SuSE Linux desktop I was using. They didn't want
| customers to see anything other than Apple-badged everything at
| their show. Especially if it was something better. They were
| scared of their customers even seeing a choice.
