I personally son't like a lot of eye candy because I'm running on a laptop and 
to keep the laptop small and weight down I chose to go with a smaller 12" 
screen and slower processor.  Not everyone has or wants a 4GHz desktop that 
dims the lights in their house when its powered on.  However if you do like 
the eye candy there is plenty of stuff on  Some of the stuff 
like karamba you could easily make your eye candy work like you want.
