X11, Window Managers The Beryl project has often been criticised as being nothing more than eyecandy for the sake of eyecandy. However, there are numerous features in Beryl which could improve usability and workflow. In this series of three articles, some of the new usability features in Beryl 0.2.0 are highlighted and explained (article I, article II, and article III).

It's obvious crap if you're seeing people gathering possible features which are maybe usable in terms of productivity. A really productive applications doesn't need such a search.

Have you even tried Beryl/Compiz?

The issue is not that people need to search to find usability in Beryl/Compiz, but rather that a lot of people have unfairly criticized it for only being "eye-candy". These articles set the record straight.

And a lot of people might not know about certain features or realize how they can be used. That is one thing to criticize Beryl for, it isn't very user friendly yet. The config dialog is a swamp. However, just reading these comments I learned about several cool useful features.
