X11, Window Managers Two more articles on Beryl. The first one is on drag and drop in Beryl: "What does Beryl add to the drag and drop picture? Well, for a start, if you've got a lot of windows open, it's easier to find the target if you can see all the windows at once. Also, if you want to drop a file/text on an application on another desktop, you can do this much more easily. This is a cool little feature that allows you to drag and drop files between applications on the same desktop, or different desktops." The second one is a performance tweak for Beryl.

So because Compiz chose a different license, this is Beryl's fault how? They release their source as required by the GPL. If the Compiz people have chosen a license that prevents its inclusion, that cannot be laid at the doorstep of Beryl. It is difficult in this circumstance to say that Beryl is not giving anything back.

Not that I really care, other than not understanding the animosity you display toward the Beryl project.

Don't... compiz-core is licensed as MIT License because the whole X.org uses this license, this way, all code from compiz can be added without a problem into X. Compiz was the original thing, Beryl is the fork, so, Beryl choosed to be incompatible...
I was just trying to make everything clear, I don't speak english very well, so, sorry if I sound angry or anything.
BTW the beryl developers could dual license beryl (MIT/GPL) so everyone would be happy... but quinnstorm himself already told that this will not happen.

Edit: Just to make it clear: Beryl is a fork from Compiz. It is well know that beryl-core didn't advanced from what originally was compiz-core, there are some beryl developer's blog posts about it ;)
