compiz - why?

OK, so I tried compiz and all [well, most of] the options. But why do folks want to use 
it? After the first ten minutes, it gets boring; not just boring but even distracting.
If I'm doing some serious work, which I do from time to time, I don't want 'wobbly 
windows' or a revolving cube (with only 4 desktops - I need at least 10!).
The only stuff that is actually practical is the translucency effects, well perhaps a few 
others also.

Is it just me? I don't mean to discredit the devs - it's great to impress Windows users - 
but what else is it good for?
