X11, Window Managers Ever since its inception, there have been problems with Compiz; people unsatisfied with the direction of the project forked it, then they merged again. Recently, the project, now known as Compiz Fusion, faced other problems, such as multiple branches and a lack of direction. A major reorganisation of the project is supposed to fix all this.

Member since:

didn't realize that saying that kwin and compiz should merge or work together and not reinvent the wheel was such a bad comment. Marked down to 0...really?

Sure merging probably wouldn't work. But I think we can all agree that sharing code or sharing techniques or sharing ideas is a good thing for both projects right?

The only thing worse than reinventing the wheel, is reinventing the same mistakes the other team already dealt with.
