An example of Fedora

by uppulurivasu In reply to Pls explain

A simple example is for suppose you install Fedora Core 9 on a physical hardware, when once you enable desktop effects you can use CTRL+ALT+Arrow Keys to flip the desktop and some other effects like wobbling windows etc.

But if you install the same on a virtual machine irrespective of the Virtualization software (VMWare or Xen or Microsoft), when you enable Desktop Effects in the Fedora Core 9 Virtual machine, you are just forcefully logged out. Hope its the same even in Vista, Ubuntu and many more.

Hope this explanation helps.

Every (nearly) operating system comes with Desktop effects..

It depends if you are writing code on the desktop effects or not. Give it a try and find out.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.
If this info is useful, please mark it helpful. Thanks
