Ubuntu + XGL + Beryl + VMware + XP = The Awsome

I redid my laptop with the Ubuntu 6.10 and installed xgl and beryl. My desktop is now a 3D cube that I can spin around to go to different work spaces. I also installed VMware and XP and followed this tutorial. Now I have a full screen XP side of the cube. So if I need to use a windows application, I just hit ctl-alt arrow key and when I am done just move the mouse to the edge and the cube spins to the next workspace. I absolutely love this. Now I just need to get the stupid wireless working and it will be perfect.
