[Bug 1293384] Re: Compiz CPU usage dramatically increased in Ubuntu 14.04


I am amazed, stunned and shocked....

I have been an Ubuntu fan and user for a long time now, as an I.T.
contractor I use it for my day to day work.  I also use the gnome
desktop always.  But since 14.04 my cpu's are running flat out...... and
I am not really pushing my system.  A quick look at top shows a process
named compiz is consuming over 300%.

Seems its related to this 'unity' stuff that has always been buggy and
will often lock up your desktop UI.

C'mon guys, I even donated a while ago, yet as we go forward with
releases we go backwards in reliability and performance.

Perhaps you need a new release pipeline?

Allowing such a bug to be present in a release is well, disgraceful and
will ruin any good name you have built up.

Unity is buggy, unreliable and deserves no place on a Linux system,
perhaps you can port it to windows where they are used to such crap.

Goodbye gnome, hello XFCE.
