Hey- just a minor annoyance. Why does the windows preview only work on non-minimized windows? Can you make it work on all windows, including docked and/or minimized windows?

As far as I know that's not a feature (yet?). The idea is that minimized windows really get minimized, to use as little resources as possible. If the preview should also work on minimized windows (especially live preview) that would take a lot of memory. Of course the big company behind the worlds most used os doesn't care about resources, so it enabled it. Linux does care. If you minimize windows, you're not supposed to be interested in what they're doing, I think is the reasoning behind it.

As many options as there are in compiz, so many of which are pretty useless other than to look cool, this should be one you can enable if you have the resources.
