He also discussed the fork: "I had the chance to talk to Quinn Storm from the beryl project during xdevconf. I would have hoped that the current situation with beryl could be improved but it seems like Quinn at least isn't interested in that. However, after talking to Quinn it's very clear to me that the fork was partially motivated by assumptions that were wrong."

Before I even read your comment I was thinking the exact same thing - sour grapes!! Like you, I say David hasn't provided much in the way of proof whatsoever to his allegations that Beryl is simply "feeding" off of projects they can't control, or using "temporary solutions and workarounds" which only make Beryl "appear" to work better. His entire attitude towards Quinn and Beryl seems juvenile. Dude, get over yourself!!! Beryl's developers are doing a great job! This is evidenced by the fact that many major distributions that are introducing compositing in their distros are using Beryl, not compiz. I also disliked the way that David was quick to add something nice right after he said something spiteful. I've always found that you have to watch your back around people like that or you might end up with a knife in it.
