Okay, I know in gnome I use compiz, but KDE has Kwin. In addition to having pretty much the same desktop effects as compiz, does Kwin also use the GPU to render and run DE as opposed to it being CPU. I have read articles giving me convoluted information on this and I want to have this down.
How do Kwin and Compiz differ/whats the same? (both technical code/hardware usage wise, and effects).
Also, whats this beryl thing? From my understanding on it, the beryl peeps just gave up and started to work making compiz better.
