Well I maintain my position as was stated earlier; there have been claims that
in some cases Compiz enhances performance. We certainly would be better off if
we found out those cases, and whether there are others where performance is
hindered. I don't suppose there's any better way other than trying it out, so
yeah, let's have it on. Still, I'd have it on only if no big issues occur.

Personally, I doubt I'll ever enable it. It seems to be what the majority wants,
