On Ubuntu in the last three releases (at least), can check
compatibility and turn on Compiz-based 3-D effects like so...
System, Preferences, Appearance, Visual Effects, Extra
If it turns on, some things look kewl, like window-dragging (wobble)
and Windows-key-tab window switching (like shuffling cards) and you'll
see transparency effects here and there. If it turns on, it also
bodes well for 3-D tools like blender, CAD, and games. If these
things don't interest you, then "I'll pass" is a fine response.
If it doesn't, it means your chipset or driver doesn't support 3-D.
If it crashes, it means the compatibility-check isn't quite up to
snuff yet. File a bug report.
