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."

Personnaly, I don't care.

I think beryl is better because :

- it is quicker than compiz
- it is more alive, and you can easily build svn code
- I saw both, and I think beryl is simpler to set up.

Everybody is free to use either compiz or beryl.

Why stinking flamewars on that ?
