Compiz has this smoothness to it that apples stuff lacks. The windows seem to uses acceleration so they alway bounce a little before settling into their positions. The same for the cube. This is all configurable but the default is great. Compiz has a more pleasing feel to it when it comes to the animations. The scale plugin (expose) has now surpassed Apple's offering, imo. Being able to type the name of the window to select it, bringing windows forward, closing windows while in scale is really intuitive and I wish that apple would consider implementing some of these features. The linux community has always been good embracing and extending. They love to extend the hell out of stuff. The smartest thing that Dave did when he created compiz is to make it pluggable, if there is one thing the OSS community is good at is making plugins.
