fast user switching was in linux well before it was in windows XP. It just wasn't streamlined or highlighted as well. You could run 2 or more X sessions and login to either as a different (or the same) user and switch between them easily. Its not as elegant a solution as in XP, but essentially the idea originated with X.

Not that I care. I think we cant win either way.

If compiz didn't copy OSX at all the OSX people would say, but it cant do THIS therefore OSX is better...and if they did copy OSX they'll say "but you copied it all from OSX"...

There are unique features in compiz if you look closely.

And I've had a couple OSX users ask if compiz is available for OSX because they think it looks BETTER than what apple has. ;)
