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.

they are also working on adding compositing support. They just started a lot later than the KDE guys, so they're pretty far behind.

Do you know that Metacity supports compositing since 2006?
You just have to activate it in gconf. I use it since more than a year. I don't think they started any later than the KWin guyz. I believe it is the other way around.
compiz was the first one and will always be an excellent project for experimenting with new features.
