My talk was mainly focused on 'what's next' and how to get desktop compositing in X to the next level." He also discussed the fork: "I had the chance to talk to Quinn Storm from the beryl project during xdevconf. I would have hoped that the current situation with beryl could be improved but it seems like Quinn at least isn't interested in that. However, after talking to Quinn it's very clear to me that the fork was partially motivated by assumptions that were wrong."

Member since:

you are , of course ,right indeed.

the work d.r. is doing is of very importance.

but why is it a mistake beryl ?

people should do what they want ! they want to do beryl , and its working bery well for them.
in contrast , D.R. is doing background work, but foreground work ( compiz ) sucks big time.

to me , neither compiz nor beryl matter .... the only thing that matters is D. R. work on Xorg.

why people forget that beryl dev's are doing it for fun , to learn new stuf... they are people , individuals.if they are happy , what is the problem ?

beryl is also doing very important stuff... they are testing and making important usuability tests. other desktops ( as kde / gnome / compiz ) can learn from this, and see what users want.
