True. Xcompmgr is a dead end. But better Linux support will hopefully allows ATI users to not get left out of next big eye candy upgrade.

I read that ATI's stance is something like: "If the X.org developers don't think Composite is worthy of support, why should we think it is?". I think it makes sense.
Buying an Nvidia card to get the effect I want makes sense to me. ATI's excuses never make sense to me.

Maybe if ATI drivers where great and this was the one thing holding them back.....but thats not the case.
