    Metacity is rock solid

    Metacity is the most reliable WM on Linux. It's the WM with the best behavior and compatibility with apps and toolkits (probably because everyone targets it).

    Compiz on the other hand, you can only rely on it crashing at least once a week. Couple it with Unity and you get crashes half dozen every day.
    Compiz can't even handle windows focus properly, let alone multiple monitors.
    I tried Compiz from Ubuntu 10.04 to 12.10, I never used it daily because of bugs with multi-monitor. My favorite is one that moves the window to a random workspace, hunting that window is so much fun. I have been subscribed to this bugs for more than a year, every month or so it is marked as fixed and then reopened.
