Compiz is not dying short term, thanks to Daniel Van Vugt, who is responsible for lots of patches that dramatically improve the performance and reduce the power usage of both Compiz and Unity (on top of Compiz). Some is avaible in Ubuntu 12.04 Beta 1, but a alot more will be integrated before Ubuntu 12.04 releases. It fucking flies with all of them.
No announcement yet.
Is Compiz On Its Deathbed?
