this may seem like a silly problem, but one of the things that I fell in love with when I first started using Linux several years ago was the snow effect on Compiz and later on Kwin when I switched to KDE. But for some reason every single desktop environment has hacked this out of their code.

So my question is this: what distro and which desktop environment do I have to use to get this plugin back? I'm more than willing to format my hard drive and distro hop JUST to get snow back on my computer.
