I started my AIGLX experience with Beryl and I was amazed by what it can do on my 855GM integrated Intel graphic card.

But a few months ago I tried Compiz and I think I prefer it over Beryl. Reasons?
- it "seems" smoother and faster,
- sane default settings,
- sane default plugins, and
- less crashes.

Anway that's just my personal opinion and preferences. But I think the stability over blingbling trade-off that David chooses is starting to show off, especially in the lower end Intel integrated graphic cards.
