Okay so the world has gone compiz crazy, but some of us still use metacity (the default gnome window manager, no fancy wobbles), personally i use metacity over compiz simply because its a bit more stable and for a machine that i work at that’s important, when I’m just checking emails or ircing or whatever compiz is great.
The problem with plain ol’ metacity is two-fold, no transparencies and no gpu acceleration – thus stepping in is composite mode :)
