Ubuntu blog Tombuntu shows Linux users rocking Compiz Fusion, the desktop effects package installed by default in Ubuntu 7.10, how to switch the effects on and off without having to mouse through two menus and flip a radio button.

Compiz-Switch should also work on other GNOME-based distros running the latest version of Compiz Fusion.
