 Kwin is better

 
 by gollum on: Jun 17 2007
 
Score 50%

Before I tried Compiz, I got used to kwin.

I was realy exited to try compiz but soon came back to plain Kwin, which was only missing the expose feature to be perfect from a usability point of view ( if you don't mind eye candy )
Even if I was surprised of the performance on my nearly 5 years old laptop ( I think it's a ATI mobility radeon 7500 I get as a graphic card, with open sourced drivers :) )

I tried beryl but it kept crashing all the time. No chance here.
And the few tenth of minutes it performed between crash didn't convice me to go on, trying to fix etc...

 Kwin rocks!

I tried Beryl, but it wasn't as stable as I had hoped, and had a lot of little quirks. I'm sticking with KWin, because it is more stable, and it has a lot more poweruser options (such as "Special Window Settings"). I knew I made the right decision when I saw the videos for the upcoming version of KWin - it has 3D acceleration like Beryl, with an emphasis on cool usability. (With some eye-candy too, obviously; this is KDE after all. :-) http://youtube.com/watch?v=4WBLlc6xCQ4

 poor kde support

 
 by paralis on: Jun 19 2007
 
Score 50%

Despite the multiple effects and the fun brought by Beryl and Compiz, I stick to kwin.
I have tested mostly Beryl since Compiz is lil bit harder to run on kde.
Beryl was mainly developed for gnome and it shows: kde support is not as good as gnome. Stability is not statisfying and the manager is WAY too bloated for my taste altough I understand considering all options it's quite a challenge to design something simple. Not mentionning, it's another GTK app to use which doesn't help visual consistency in my QT environment.

I look forward to kde 4 with native support for transparency and all.

Meanwhile I can live without 3d effects.

I'm waiting for KDE4 and for the new free ATI drivers, so I can get rid of that nagging proprietary driver.

 Kwin is better

 
 by Fri13 on: Jun 26 2007
 
Score 50%

I dont have anything against beryl or compiz but i _love_ kwin options what you get when you right click windeco. All "keep over others" and "special settings per window" are what i love. So long thant beryl dont these have, i dont like to use it. I love that when i start application i can save place where it stays (yes, beryl have this too) and a lot more!

Just get better Beryl/compiz Kwin integration on KDE4 and i would use those mighty helping parts of it.


KDE it just must be...

i knew beryl some months ago, trying the mandriva live cd
and then i decided to try it a bit more in my ubuntu...
and now im really used to it, not only for the fancy stuff, but for the way to move between the diferent desktops, its really confortable for me :3
my only problem is that i have to change the window manager every time i want to play assault cube, or any 3D game xD if i dont i have to restart x after playing... its my only complain...

I run beryl-manager in the systray and just use that to switch back to my other WM (which is KWin), when I want to play 3D games.

I'm liking Beryl, but in a KDE environment some of its quirks hurt usability (unable to sent to desktop #x, no multi-wallpaper support, all windows spawn at fullscreen size, etc)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
