I agree. CompIz is a good concept and it would be foolish to abandon it. If one has an ATI video card, CompIz is indispensable for resolving screen lock-ups (i.e. 'Turn off vBlank'). It made all the difference in the way my systems performed. As to Unity, all I can say is what I've said on many an occasion,if you don't like it, don't use it. My experience with Unity has been mostly favorable. Yes, it's geared toward touch pads and screens. If the developers of the many available Linux distros honestly want to 'keep up' with consumer demand and maintain their presence, they'd be wise to follow suit. Touch pads and screens are the future of computing...like it or not. Linux developers should take a lesson from Microsoft with respect to Windows 8. Win 8 has the capability to run both on older pc's and touchpads. Win 8 is a lot closer to the Unity concept than any Linux guru would care to admit. By the way...Win 8 works pretty well.
