    Phoronix: Nomad Compiz++ To Merge Back Into Compiz

    In late 2008 we witnessed the release of Compiz++, a rewrite of the Compiz core in C++ plus other invasive work in order to improve this compositing window manager. With Compiz++ being a branch of Compiz and various other developers working on their own branches, the future of Compiz was unclear, however, today it has been cleared up some.Following today's Compiz Conference Call, it has been decided that both Compiz++ and Nomad (another branch of Compiz) will be merged back into Compiz...

          Hmm, why man? I think this was actually avoided here just in time.

              What did he do? Make the call to Novell and sort it out?

              Or just whine, whine, and complain?

                    I love eye candy. It puts stress on my system, and makes games run slower, but you have to admit that nothing else can compete.

                      It shouldn't be doing that. The idea of having hardware accelerated compositing is to offload some of the burden on your CPU to the GPU. I find that as long as I have RenderAccel enabled in my video driver and vsync enabled in compiz, I can watch unaccelerated video (f**k Adobe for not enabling hardware accelerated flash for my card) in full-screen without a hint of choppiness, which is something I could never do without compositing enabled.

                        I can both watch video and play games with Compiz enabled.

                        I really enjoy the convenience of nvidia

                          No it shouldn't, not unless if you have tons of eye candy enabled.
                          But with just compositing alone, minus demanding eye candy, it does save you system a lot of stress.
