    Stinkeye has it. They use different window managers. You get basic eye candy with classic-no effects (metacity window manager) and classic-w/compiz you can have max eye candy (even the cube).

    Unity2d has a similar look and feel to unity3d, but was written to use a slightly tweaked version of Metacity to run on gfx cards
    that don't meet the OpenGL requirements of compiz.
    This answers my question Thanks, I'll mark this thread as solved.
