X11, Window Managers Ever since its inception, there have been problems with Compiz; people unsatisfied with the direction of the project forked it, then they merged again. Recently, the project, now known as Compiz Fusion, faced other problems, such as multiple branches and a lack of direction. A major reorganisation of the project is supposed to fix all this.

would be nice if compiz and kwin merged somehow and stopped reinventing eachothers wheels. Not sure if that would even be possible since kwin is most likely heavily dependent on kde.

merge? no that would be bad. what would be usefull is code sharing and idea sharing between the 2 projects. But I am in the Kwin boat too, good stuff.

Definitely not possible. The architecture is completely different and there really isn't any possibility to do significant code sharing. However luckily most of the effects are quite simple, so there isn't much to share except ideas (which has been happening).
