I have a Dell Inspiron with the ATI x1400 video card. In Ubuntu 7.04 I
ran Compiz-Fusion in XGL with the fglrx drivers and the system was
very responsive. I noticed no performance penalties at all. In Ubuntu
8.04 I am running Compiz natively with the current fglrx drivers, and
the system is sluggish. Disabling Compiz makes the system very
responsive. So I am interested in running Compiz in XGL like I had in
7.04. Is this advised? Are there and disadvantages? I specifically
need the Enhanced Zoom Desktop and Negativity plugins. Thanks in
