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.

Quinn Storm is transgender and prefers the feminine "she". Given the beard however it is a confusing topic to me.

On an unrelated note I tend to think it impolite and fork Compiz as GPL since it does present problems feeding back upstream. It seems at least some of the developers are willing to help send their patched upstream though.

Well, it's not that simple (see this interview with "her"):
