X11, Window Managers David Reveman writes: "I'd like to get all of you updated on the compiz related things discussed at the X developer conference that was held last week. My talk was mainly focused on 'what's next' and how to get desktop compositing in X to the next level." 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."

er ... do you really want that list ?!

and i am sorry , but i dont use compiz because i use beryl.
if beryl didnt exist , i would use kwin !

i do apreciate and respect D.R. and hope he continues to work in X development , but as compiz ( window manager / composite manager ) goes , it sucks!

its not beryl's fault... compiz just sucks

plus , i dunno why is this mentality of "beryl will become obsolete , metisse will become obsolete " ( read the forums , its in there ). Are you guys seeing too much Star Trek Borg episodes ?
this users will over time choose compiz , and beryl will die mentality... boy oh boy

just to remind you of something : wrong ... i for one , will choose kde4 , no matter if beryl dies or not

for someone who is mostly unbiased , and respects both side's work ( at least the very important and tecnological work of David r. ) , reading your forum and blog posts just makes you look like angry geeks
