When is depending on merge code across a number of upstream projects. Seems it is atleast 6 months of work. Take a look at http://hoegsberg.blogspot.com/2007/08/compiz-and-fedora.html for some more details.

tnx for the links, they are interesting...

I'm really looking forward to really good hardware acceleration on the linux desktop. Compiz works pretty bad here (and I have a dualcore proc, 3gb ram and a geforce 6600 256mb) and besides, it's still actually slower than noncomposited. That should really change...

Just curious, what driver you use for geforce 6600 256 mb? I have a similar machine (Athlonx 64 X2 3800, 2bg ram and geforce 7800GS 256mb) who runs compiz smoothly. I presume the issues is related to the hardware configuration.
