I recently moved from Linux to OS X.

So far nothing has disappointed me but I miss the compiz desktop effects I used to have on my Debian (on Ubuntu before I moved to Debian) with xfce and compiz like 3D effects, desktop workspaces in 3D view and many more:

I tried searching for equivalent or similar stuff for OS X but no luck. Looking forward to making my OS X desktop experience like (or even better than) compiz.

Could you elaborate which compiz desktop effects you miss on OS X? Could you provide links or screenshots? Compiz has lots of features and your description "those 3-d effects, desktop workspaces in 3d view and many more" lacks detail. –  jaume Jul 2 '13 at 11:53
