Well, I have just saying this to let know that the fglrx driver *cannot*
be used with AIGLX without the above hacks and at this time we don't
have Xgl in Fedora so in my eyes a choice must be done. Using XGL as a
temporary hack or making temporary hacks to let users use compiz with
AIGLX. If we don't do one of them, then we forgot a big part of the
Fedora users.

Yes, ATI driver suck for many reasons proprietary/not intensive
developed/etc... but many people have such cards and saying that we
don't care about it is just saying we don't care about a big part of our
users, I think that's not good for Fedora. I'm personally sure that many
people have switch to GNU/Linux these last year just to have a wobbly
desktop with all these eye candy stuffs. I like eye candy as a awesome
propaganda piece for the GNU/Linux desktops too.

Just my 2 cent of the day.
