Yes and no, I don't have composite on my tower because I have a crap graphics card. But Beryl is running on the craptop, which also has a crap graphics card, but it is good enough to run Beryl, it's just a shame I hate laptops.

if kwin will ever do this by default, i might give it a try. other than that i dont want to waste my time on something like beryl which just slows everything down and makes everything unstable...
people just are to focused on effects

i run unpatched kde on freebsd, it has never crashed on me in years. a friend who runs beryl on kubuntu feisty reports multiple crashes a day (although kubuntu is unstable without beryl aswell)...

I did run Beryl on my desktop computer for a while after Kubuntu Edgy was released, but gave it up after a while cause I didn't use its features and other 3D apps suffered badly of the required X.org settings (nVidia GeForceFX 5200 card, ran beryl with nvidia setup). The desktop's CPU is crap, too. (2.4 GHz Celeron w/ 128 kb cache...)
I then installed it on the laptop (Acer Travelmate 4202WLMi) when I upgraded it to Kubuntu Feisty. (Let's just say, the laptop CAN handle Beryl, as opposed to the desktop.) Although, after upgrading Beryl to the snapshots packaged by Treviño, the screensaver lock started acting up. Either the password box appeared under the screen saver (invisible, but usable), or the screensaver didn't show up, just the password box (which was kinda cool). Because of this, I went back to KWin. I hope KWin 4 can satisfy my "needs" ;)

When you jump to a tty and then back, it freezes here... that's why I don't use Beryl.

I use beryl well on my laptop with dual screen, but I use a real dual screens, I have two separated screens in my Xorg.

For Xinerama I have some problems without beryl so I didn't try with.

I must use 1 beryl instance by screen but it works fine ^^

Laptop : Kubuntu
Server : Gentoo

I gave beryl a try but I absolutely don't like the way it handles the desktops because I am used to work with six desktops. Also it still seems to be too unstable to really work with and there are some things I'm used to that don't work under beryl.

I use kwin and the integrated composite of X for transparent windows together with the very nice 3ddesk "pager" and komposé.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
