I hate to say it, but it is the only usable compositing manager for me.
Compiz is close, but still is laggy in places (scrolling especially),
not to mention unstable and hard to configure. Don't even get me
started on KDE 4's KWin, because half the time, its compositing doesn't
even work, to say nothing of performance (and really, there's not much
to say about its performance: it just isn't there). If you have another
suggestion, I am open to hear it.
