One other point: compiz still has lots of issues with client-side decorated
apps like Gedit, for users of Unity or MATE/compiz. Although a bug report
claims it is fixed, only some parts of the problem were fixed, In gtk versions
3.16 or higher, compiz fails to tell GTK that it is in fact compositing and GTK
falls back to a "fallback mode" without transparency support for things like
rounded corners on CSD decorations. Also, a wide black border results if the
theme sets a non-zero margin, but a zero margin means no resize. There are
some workarounds for this, but they do not work in GTK3.19 so far as I can

Ubuntu nornally patches CSD apps to use traditional server side decoration, 
thus avoiding this on apps maintained by Ubuntu.
