    Phoronix: Compiz Fusion To Be Dropped, Other Changes Planned

    Yesterday we shared that Compiz++ and Nomad would be merged back into Compiz and today there are even more announcements coming out of the Compiz camp. With Compiz not having a clear road-map, a Compiz council has been established to begin charting the future of this compositing window manager...

    LinuxHater is going to have a blash with this!

      Good thing nobody reads him, since he ran out of valid ideas to whine about quite a while ago.

        Good -- more merging is always good for acceptance.

          I also think this is a good move for various reasons.

            He isn't whining. If you look behind the flamage, this is actually constructive criticism. Of course we all have a differing sense of humor.

              I have only been reading this board for a few months now, and I don't really have any opinion about the poster in question here. But if I have to look past someone's flamage to get to their point, there is a very high percentage change that I will not bother. I think that if someone wants a post to be taken seriously, then they should leave the attitude at home. Of course, that is just my opinion

                  It was actually the -only- blog I could read; the others bored the heck out of me. Guess I'll start reading again if he's continuing.

                    Fair enough. I think I'll take a pass at reading that blog though, for the same reasons I originally stated. But again, that's just me. To each their own...

                      Say what you guys will about linuxhater, most of his post are well researched and have valid points. He just culminates all the "piss me off" quirks that we have all experienced, points out a realistic evaluation of aspects in linux without "FOSS fan blindness".

                      Harsh, yes, realistic, yes, without merit, no.

                        The good thing about Linuxhater is that he isn't a Linux hater He actually cares, or he wouldn't bother.

                        It's comedy mostly. I've seen American comedians making fun of their country for example even though they're actually quite patriotic themselves and actually love their country, not hate it. It's just comedy with criticism. Worth a read in any event.

                        A quote from his "Pulse my audio" article:

                        "so now that we're in this "mess" (as the lead developer of PulseAudio calls it*), LSB comes along and says "we're going to standardize how your write audio apps!" Oh, but wait, ALSA's now "old" (we hardly knew ye), and I can't directly program PulseAudio. Hmm... So the article's brilliant solution? Standardize on the PulseAudio-safe subset of ALSA.

                        WHAT THE FUCK.

                        * BTW, also notice that it's the PulseAudio guy calling Linux audio a mess. Did he forget that it was his project that took the existing mess, and unloaded a giant steaming turd on it? Congratufuckinglations. You've just made it worse. You're a truly a worthy OSS contributor."

                        Flaming? Yes. But on the spot. And funny.

                            I hope something comes of all this, but my personal guess is that nothing will come of composition managers until they can be used without breaking many other things in a very significant way.

                            I was initially excited about the prospect of KDE rolling their own composition manager in KWin. I guess I thought that maybe because it was KWin it wouldn't break all my games and stuff. Nope. No better than Compiz in this respect.

                            To those that would use it to lure the masses to Linux, all I have to say is shame on you. What if it does bring them in... bring them in for what? Things that are broken because of it? Does it not occur to anyone that the same set of people that would be wooed by wobbling windows and spinning cubes might also be the type that enjoy other 3D applications such as games? Linux Hater's Blog should have a field day with it.

                              It doesn't break games, it creats an entirely new game I like to call "Dude, where's my mouse cursor"!
