Seeing how Compiz and Beryl seem better to me than, for example, Aero anyways.

I dislike Microsoft as much as anyone, but these premature claims of victory are not good.

I have tried Compiz and Beryl on a number of machines, and in the cases that worked at all... each was very buggy.

I have not used Aero, but it would have to be awfully unstable for Compiz and Beryl to claim any sort of victory at this point.

IMO, we are still playing catch up. I am writing this from my laptop with a video chip set that is one of the many, many, many chip sets not even supported.
