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."

Last time I checked, it's basic window management wasn't any better.

The major problem I have is that it doesn't do any edge detection, which means positioning windows against the screen edge is needlessly painful. It is also buggy at handling maximized windows when two displays are attached (the window flicks between being the size of each display). I also have other problems with gimmie integration that metacity does not have.

Snapping Windows under Window Management in compiz config is where it's at.

Well, that's full of crack. But thanks.

Having enabled this, I note a further problem with it - it doesn't consider the top of the panel (or bottom, or side, depending on where your panel is) to be a screen edge. Metacity does, and Compiz should.

I've noticed window maximization problems on only one display (my laptop). I thought it might be the ATI drivers so I tried the same version of the window manager on an Nvidia based machine and had the same problem.

I'm sure it won't be long until the major bugs are worked out though; this is just the first development release.
