Actually it's impressive to see users of other OSs turn their eyes round
when they see you changing the active window with Cover switch or doing
a desktop change when the cube turns. ;-)

If you like 3D stuff, you'll get it with the Nvidia driver. But I see
exactly what you're saying. You'll see no difference when you code in vi.

Could it be that the problems of the Nvidia driver not working have
their reason in a non working xorg.conf file? What is it's content? As
the driver installer suggest his own version, and from my experience
this works extremely well (screen, mouse with all buttons &c.), this
could also be the source of the problem AFAICS.
