One fundamental feature of Compiz/Fusion, is that sleeping applications get dark, instead of repeating everything over it. Without Compiz/Fusion, applications seem to mess up graphically, not responding, so that other applications gets repainted onto the canvas of the sleeping application. Making it darker, as in Compiz/Fusion, is much much more intuitive for the average user.

This feature of compiz annoys me quite a bit, mainly because it occurs seemingly at random (i know it isnt, but it looks like it is). Sometimes windows with no activity gets dark then they illuminate again even though nothing visual has actually happened.

"Without Compiz/Fusion, applications seem to mess up graphically"

With Compiz/Fusion OpenGL apps mess up graphically, at least in my experience on Fedora 7.
