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.

KWin in KDE4.2 is far superior to Compiz in most ways IMNSHO.


Really?

I've only tried KWin 4.1 (and only on two machines) but I found it significantly slower, not as pretty and a massively reduced number and range of effects.

Compiz Fusion massively trumps KWin 4.1 so unless KWin4.2's rendering has progressed significantly in only a few months then I really struggle to see how you draw that conclusion.

That said, KDE4.x + Compiz Fusion is a killer combo.

KWin in 4.2 is much faster and looks much better than the one in KDE 4.1 - KDE development goes very fast ;-)

Check the visual guide if you wanna know more.
