Again ypu can't blame compiz for not supporting your chipset.

I just want to clarify a point. I am not blaming compiz for not supporting my chip set. I don't care for the current composited desktops and prefer standard 2D, so it is not really an issue for me personally.

What I'm saying is that Compiz and Beryl are not better to that majority of people who cannot run them due to lack of driver support, no matter who's fault it is.

That is not a criticism of Compiz/Beryl. It is simply an observation about reality.

I am criticizing the overconfidence and premature claims of victory that I have been noticing among some of the fans. Not the people who are working so hard on the projects themselves.
