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."

Beryl deserves its props.

Users didnt move to beryl just because if it was Compiz fork. they flocked for a good reason and the user base kept increasing for a good reason too.

developers kept cracking code at break-neck speed (as compared to Other X projects) and it just keeps getting better and better. Dont trust me? then take a look for yourself >> latest svn install of beryl on my HP laptop (opensuse) http://youtube.com/watch?v=dJO6CLln-B0 .

really, i read nothing but sore grapes regarding david's words.
