boy that yahoo sends out some lousy e-mail...

You don't mention which version of Ubuntu but I gather that it uses the
'old' version of xorg which would account for the disparity between
Fedora and Ubuntu - at least in my mind.

ATI proprietary drivers are not the province of open source developers
and Fedora does not package or recommend their use. Perhaps you are
getting them directly from ATI or from livna/rpm-fusion but not Fedora.

As for wanting compiz to show off to Windows users...feh
