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."

ok , you will get that list , dont forget tomorrow to check this out.

if beryl is 99 % compiz , then , heck , the beryl developers did a miracle in that 1 % code !

every version i try compiz , i dont like it ! its animations sucks ( expecially of rotating the cube , its nothing like beryl ) and other problems. i am not exagerating when saying that i prefer kwin to compiz.

now , maybe your native language isn't english, but surely you would understand that when i was mentioning angry geeks , those were not my technical arguments.

go into compiz's forum , and read it. then go into beryl's forum and read it also. then you will see which side looks like angry geeks

constructive comments ?! ok , here is one !
compiz and its developers are the root program , and the one doing the important coding. they are more skilled coders and working on what needs to be done , not only for compiz , or beryl , but for all desktops that work with X. its credit to them and they are due.

but they completly miss the point when they talk so badly and insult so badly the beryl developers. they want the fame and fortune. they make a point of always saying beryl is full of hacks and compiz will make beryl and metisse obsolete. that compiz "will win" in the end ! that it was a mistake for beryl to exist !

this makes it look like a race , surviving on a jungle ! it is not !

beryl should give more credits to compiz.

and compiz should learn usuability wise, what beryl is doing.
