Some other compiz effect are really cool.

Wobbly windows, animations (magic lamp, vacuum, burn, explode, dodge effect), ring switch, shift switcher, snow, expo....

Conky from what I seen will do the trick.

It's not that bad...

And I think having a newer compiz with 3d windows & cube deformation into either a cylinder or a sphere would be quick to impress.

A little like this picture (http://joeb454.files.wordpress.com/2008/08/sweet.png)

Kiba Dock, enable some of the cool effects in Kiba Dock.

The water effect in Compiz seems to be a good wow effect.

I saw a compiz of sharks in a tank... is that what you're talking about? That was pretty sweet.

Well everyone has their own likings for docks.
I like cario for the simplicity and the advanced configeration all in one.

Then I also like Kiba-Dock even though you have to either complie it from source or get 5 separate things from getdeb.net and install them.

After the install of it,it has anything you need,looks great,and just works.
