Compiz Being Re-Retired From Fedora
Phoronix: Compiz Being Re-Retired From Fedora
Compiz was already being dropped from Fedora as there was no package maintainer at the beginning of the year for this OpenGL compositing window system on Fedora and there was not much interest from Fedora users. Compiz is needed for the Unity desktop on Fedora, among other potential use-cases, but now it's being retired once again...
Compiz was NEVER stable for me.
Not even in gnome2 on Ubuntu 10.04. It always freaked out on me. I was so relieved at the stability of Mutter/Muffin. It's a real shame that Unity is built on Compiz. Hopefully it's not too late...
Compiz started as an experimental hack to X
And every year they just added more and more hacks. It does need to die, and soon.
