I am sorry to say that but those Compiz guys are just trying to rip off as much thing as they can from Mac OS X, their product is a totally rip off of what Apple does with its OS.

I mean come on, dashboard, Expose, Cover Flow are all riped off. Not only that, all 3D effects that Apple use in its OS or application (namely Keynote) are ripped off. The accessibility zoom feature is also implemented exactly as in OS X.

It s not that i am against that they use some ideas found elsewhere but can't they have their own ideas or create something which is not simply a reimplementation of something else found elsewhere.

Don't they have any kind of creativity?
