Yes, and I find it slightly less functional than KWin, but it is a lot of fun. 
(K)Ubuntu Edgy (6.10) ships with AIGLX installed by default, so you just need 
to add a line to the X config to turn the flashy stuff on, install Beryl and 
you're away. Painless for someone like me who was worried about screwing 
stuff up!
