"""
I also agree with your post. Saying that Compiz/beryl is crap because it doesn't work with everything is wrong.
"""

*sigh*

That is not what I am saying and never has been. Please quote where I said that your pet project^W^W^WCompiz/Beryl is crap because it doesn't work with everything.

I am saying that the ability to run it on their own hardware weighs in heavily to people who do not happen to be loyal devotees of Linux/Compiz/Beryl.

I am also saying that on the several machines that I have tried them on, each with different distributions, versions, and video chipsets, they both have been buggy.

Based upon that, I conclude that it is too early to claim victory as some want to do. That is my point. Nothing more and nothing less.

I suspect that the Compiz/Beryl developers, as opposed to certain overzealous fans, would actually agree with me on that; Which is why they are working so hard to make the software better.

Certain fans of every project seem to have trouble understanding that there might be a middle ground in which constructive criticism can live, in between the realms of "unconditional support" and "frontal attack".
