    whats your problem ?
    First, I want to point out I liked your scientific attitude towards the argument.
    Secondly, I haven't seen any insults. It is true that there are several people clueless on how compositing works, and that those people tend to think compositing == pretty effects. That's the closest I saw to an insult, and it's not really that close to one.

    On the video card upgrade, what for? Compositing should work in almost any card from 2006 and later, probably some older ones too.

    What I wonder is if it bypasses composition for fullscreen applications.
    of course it does. google for benchmarks on performance and compositing that involve enlightenment (e17, etc.). there is EXPLICITLY an option to turn this on or off in the compositor settings (and is on by default).
