X11, Window Managers The merger between compiz and Beryl now has a name: Compiz Fusion. "Our previous attempts to select a project name have not gone well. We tried a poll but the names in the poll were not pre-qualified to determine if they were usable and the 'winning' name was also a strongly disliked name. Kristian and I each proposed a plan to select a name, but that effort got sidetracked by a massive flame war on the mailing list. While our community has some democratic features, ultimately it is a meritocracy and the people who contribute the most value have the most say. So in the end a decision was made by the majority of the people who have contributed the most."

I rather like the Compiz name, and it doesn't sound silly.
Actually, here in sweden, we have a very similar word, kompis, that is pronounced the same and means friend/buddy.
What's so silly about that? ;)
