"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."

This is my simple observation of reality.

Intel 60% of graphics market. Intel drivers work well with the current composited desktops, unlike say "Aero"

Let me just Clarify a point.
Nvidia *were* not well supported.
AMD Open-source drives were poor...but supported AXGL
AMD own Drivers are better(sic)..but don't support AXGL

Accelerated graphics on Linux is poor, and is getting better fast, its not stable; universally available...but its getting there about 4-5 for xorg 7.3 which I suspect will change everything.
