2 It's too big for the simple window compositioning that I require. I don't see whe mint-meta-xfce and mintdesktop have to depend on it. I also can't get keyboard shortcuts to work.

5 EXCELLENT!!! Simply a must have. At least for people that are still into the good old fashion desktop computers, not the teenage "rub your fingers on a 4inch screen all day long Gizmos"

2 I really DO like it. The bad rating comes with the fact that it lags really bad on 3 out of 3 machines ive tested. One of those being a quad-core. I really do like the "eye-candy" and all the features, but I'm not the only one having lag problems, till this gets fixed I'm afraid I will have to use metacity. Not as pretty, but it fixes the lag, and never let me down!

5 It's not just about eye candy and toys, though there is that too. Compiz also brings features to your desktop that are extremely USEFUL! I'd be frustrated as hell if I had to do without Compiz on my main computer.

4 Paired with Emerald, this is truly awesome and pretty. With light use of effects, it can improve your work flow. With heavy use of effects it can give you a migraine!

5 I loved compiz since I first saw it in a friends computer. Now my girlfriend is asking me how to make her windows wobble in her MS-Windows laptop. This is a great way to impress and convert Windows users.
