There are some things in compiz that I simply love, and that make
_my_ life in front of a desktop easier.

a) no redraw on window expose/move. This is simply the biggest win of
   them all.

b) _slight_ transparency on window movement. Makes it easier to see
   where you are going.

c) _slight_ reducion in saturation/brightness for windows in the background.

I also think that expo is kind of neat (show all desktops at once and
drag windows across them), as is Expose.

I also have desktops-on-a-cube and some other things enabled, but that's
just eyecandy.

Oh, and fading non-responding applications to black-and-white is neat,
