I tried installing compiz on my amd64 version of gentoo and it didn't like it at all. I am unmerging now and can't wait to be rid of it, and from what I have read it is really unstable and not fully developed anyway. I loved x.org when i was using slackware 13 and I am thinking about installing it next. I did notice that every once in a while it kind of glitch up a bit though. Not enough to break my system but enough that I notice. What I am looking for is good multimonitor support. I like widgest, tranparency, and the genie effect
. On slackware I could set the desktop background of both of my monitors to different images very easily, although I don't know if that had anything to do with the manager. Is there any effects/windows manager you guys would suggest that looks good and works well? Oh, it really needs to play nice with 64bit and nvidia cards too.
