Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just like Eugenia yesterday, I also upgraded my laptop's Ubuntu Feisty installation to Gutsy a few days ago. The upgrade process went completely awry, though, so I was forced to do a fresh install. Not a bad thing, as it gave me the opportunity to take a look at Ubuntu's soon-to-be-released Gutsy Gibbon with GNOME 2.20

If you use KWin as windowdecorator in Compiz, does that use the KWin functionality or only the look? If it uses the functionality, you have all this kind of stuff in there by using rmb on window -> special window settings. There you can set anything you want on an application.

And having all that in a submenu - what, are you insane? ;-)

(this is one of the things I'm happy KWin gets compositing - Compiz is still behind on the REAL windowmanagment. Of course, a Gnome user is used to Metacity, so they actually have MORE with compiz).

Don't get me started on that one. Metacity is a downright MESS. I'm so happy with Compiz/Emerald.

Well, I wouldn't say mess, as far as I can tell - it's just a bit too basic for my taste.
