    ccsm cheap shot

    I just noticed in the *new* ccsm the 'Wizard' option with the dialog box:

    'wastes resources to create fancy particle system for wizard wannbes'

    Some persons consider ccsm and it's effects as an assistive tecnology, especially for persons who are vision impaired. I mean .. do the developers really have nothing better to do (like fix some major bugs) than to play with us like this ?

    The "Wizard" CCSM effect, from what I know, is Beta/Unstable for now, and is not part of the default CCSM installation.
    Maybe it's now an official plugin, I don't know. I guess it's developped by users like me and you - perhaps not the CCSM maintainers. Just guessing.

    It's been a long cycle. Mabey the devs are just bored. btw .. it works ! lol Now I got more 'razzle and dazzle' to show new Ubuntu prospects. I guess this is one of the surprises they were talking about early on in the cycle.

    What version are you using, as I have CCSM 0.9.9.0, here and I don't have any wizards of any sort. Could you possibly have proposed enabled?

    lol, well, AFAIK there are one or two community guys trying to revive some of the old Compiz’s plugins to the new codebase.

    Re: ccsm cheap shot

    Greetings,
    I expect that ccsm just like the kernel and most anything else regarding modern programming is modular. So that one feature is probably someones pet project. I'm thinking that even though we use these things as open source, those individual devs own copy rights on parts of that code. I'm thinking that the final features are more dependent on some individual efforts than corporate design. That is why some new things appear and old things may disappear or get better. This unmanagablity that we love is what commercial software devs hate. I say, keep your acceptance high and your expectations low and you will be happy. Just my Opinion.
    P.S.
    And I'm happy!

    I have no idea how (proposed) repos became enabled because I do not recall enabling them - but yes, proposed is enabled.
