You know, I wanted to add some beryl / compiz demos to the iso that Alex
sent me.  To my embarrassment, I couldn't figure how to save the youtube
video locally.  I gave it all of 3 minutes before I gave up.  I thought
this one was very cool:

It compares Vista to Beryl.  Not sure if it's a fair comparison, I've
never used Vista.

Revolution-OS is a great movie!  Feel free to bring it.  I'm sure we'll
get sick of the screencasts eventually.
