Comment 114 for bug 933776

Using the current behavior leads to windows flying all over the place, invisible windows, windows stuck outside of the viewport, etc. I can't see how anyone can use this in its' current state.

Things were changed for this new behavior, braking the previous behavior for everyone who used it (it is impossible to show all the windows from all the desktops). I can't understand how hacking this instead of fixing the expected behavior is better.

I remember compiz 0.8 was great to use, fast, I don't remember all this windows drawing artifacts and lag. Maybe I have a bad memory, and the rewrite was for the better. I have been always against the "I'm moving to distro X" naysayers, but I'm reaching my limit, and am tired of being unable to work because of critical regressions that change the behavior of the desktop all the time, and linger to be fixed, which is even worse when there are public patches that lots of people have been using for ages without known issues.

I fear for the transition to Wayland... :-(

I know, I know, this isn't a forum, and this doesn't help, and whatever, but I've been happily using Ubuntu for so long, that coming to this is making me very frustrated and sad, and I believe the more than 200 people reporting having this bug for so long are too.
