Compiz is too buggy to use - its still hopelessly broken with java menus

thats java which is broken here not compiz.
its not hoplessly broken there is a workaround for it
export AWT_TOOLKIT="MToolkit
but there are other bugs I explained above (opengl apps)

and you'd want to use one of the actually maintained compositing managers

? don't understand this compiz _is_ activly maintained

Even then

- Do you know anyone who doesn't turn the effects off eventually ?
- Do we care about the huge increase in power consumption ?

yes here I agree with you.. even thought I don't know how 'huge' it really is.
