X11, Window Managers "This is the first development release of Compiz Fusion, the result of more than six months of work and polish. Compiz Fusion is the result of a merge between the Compiz community plugin set 'Compiz Extras' and the parts of the Beryl project that are independent of the window manager core. The two communities have re-united to create a user experience for Linux that rivals anything available on other platforms."

"It's becoming reasonable"

I've been using compiz-fusion SVN on and off from from the Gentoo xeffects overlay. I have to say it's improved quite a bit since Compiz 0.50 was released (I found Beryl to be horribly unstable compared to Compiz). The new switcher plugins are especially shiney.

Wobbly windows still screw up under CPU load though whereas metacity remains smooth.

I always wondered if the unstability was gentoo + Beryl or just Beryl in general. Obviously I've noticed the same effect on my gentoo box.
