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."

"Once more into the breach my friends.."

Whether or not Beryl is using hacks to accomplish some of its effects is irrelevant.

No it 's not.

What's obviously at issue is the Compiz folks are pissed off about the fork.

And rightfully so... Fist and foremost the fork happened for all the wrong reasons... lies and personal rivalry.

Now, the fork has moved ahead and fanned out in directions Compiz hasn't yet gone, the compiz devs are making sure they point out every flaw in Beryl while at the same time using stability and "doing it right" as their own excuse for being slow.

I dare you to come up with a list of 10 features that are only available on beryl and not on compiz. (ok, i'll five you the snow animation as an head start ;) )

Then, i dare you to make a list of all the bugs you'll find beryl but not in compiz.
