No edge attraction (with wobbly window enabled)
Moving windows flickers (with wobbly window disabled)
Resizing windows incredibly not smooth

Beryl has to improve to get close to kwin day-to-day comfort of use (for the eyes candy part it's already good enought ;) )

I use beryl and it performs flawlessly. I have none of the problems that others have mentioned. Stable as can be. Never had it crash, doesn't slow down the computer.

 Performance and Stab

Performance and Stability are great.
I am Running it on Gentoo and don't have any Problems.

It offers some really useful features like zooming and making windows visible by moving the mouse over them.
And there are many more...
And it looks great.

I think KDE+Beryl is the best desktop avileble today. I won't miss it anymore.

Beryl is working flawlessly on two of my systems, both using Nvidia cards. One system is running SUSE 10.2 while the other is on Fedora 7.

I have had no problems with either and consider Beryl to be very stable.

After using compiz, beryl and now compcomm (compiz/beryl merge), I could never go back to boring old kwin.
May give it a try when kde4 is stable but for I love my desktop fx.
They don't slow my comp down at all and (especially compcomm) are very stable for me.
Even if I was forced to use kwin I would have to have shadows enabled at the very least, everything looks too flat and jumbled without them.

My beryl (and soon compcomm) repository for sidux/debian-sid

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.
