thats why I would prefer sticking with metacity and just port the
desired compiz plugins to it.
The advantages are clear:
Metacity already handles all the fallback stuff for us, so no manual
intervention is needed when AIGLX is not avaible.
On the other hand metacity does not support all the fancy effects compiz
does, but IMO OGL accelerated compositing alone is enough for the most
Although I'd like to see metacity implementig the following compiz plugins:
* cube(in slide mode) for desktop switching
* switcher for live preview in Alt+Tab
* scale as an Alt+Tab alternative
