Aero is pretty bad. ;) People complain about compiz and beryl making java apps show up blank but in Vista java apps just turn off Aero completely. Flash does the same. And Aero only comes back on when you close the web browser that was running flash.

Well, that doesn't sound good.

But of the two options, I would think that getting out of the way and not messing up the actual app would be the preferable thing to do.

While I'm unimpressed with composited desktops in general, when the eye candy starts getting in the way of actual work the eye candy needs to go.
