Re: why compiz in place of mutter


You can not be serious. Im not fan of moving away from the Gnome project at
all, but sticking with compiz was one of the best descisions made in ubuntu
so far. Unity is noticeably MUCH faster even on my low-spec netbook. Mutter
uses 20% of cpu with falf the frame rate on it, while Compiz eats about 5%.
Who cares about memory consumption on a software where speed matters most?
