Default KDE 4.xxx has one thing really wrong! - No Xsnow.
while being back in the land of The Gnome, I thought I would give Compiz a try, just to see how XGLsnow, would look with XSNOW.
I really like it. Also, my vision has not been robbed of me, nor have I been struck by lightening or some such dire fate.... ;-)
Watching video is ok too, with the FGLRX driver. The bad issues I had while in KDE 4.xxxx, seem to have gone. I am very surprised by that, cause most of this discussion, is that the video tearing, was wm independent.
I've been a KDE guys, since 1998. Hmmm....
In the mean time, xmouse is playing nicely on my desktop.
