Many Forks, Many mergers Does this remind you of something (Note: This took me two minutes, feel free to ask me for the .svg and make it better :P) (Also, the ‘compiz’ logo by graphreak is tentative. We may or may not use it) Update: By popular demand, the old image was an eyesore, but you can get it by following this…. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related

Those arrows are hideous.

ok, please make it better 🙂
Just noticed this: You stretched the new logo. It looks fat 😦
That’s a BRILLIANT chart. Thanks for that.
Send me the logos and I will do it using graphviz.
the updated svg if anyone wants it:
@Saleel V: You are awesome!
Wake up all at Compiz as Beryl is alive and kicking !
You might be interested that over a weekend a mate and myself introduced Beryl back in to the fold. This is a direct result of our frustration of how bloated Compiz has become and is becoming more of a fashion thing rather than functional for having multiple desktops.
OK so I have been using Ubuntu 7.04 on and off for a couple of years now and Beryl comes as default. After Ubuntu 7.04 Compiz Fusion (now Compiz) came as default. To begin with this was not a problem but as Compiz became more complex with spheres, globes and other useless features, performance was becoming impaired.
Late one night I started looking at introducing Beryl to Ubuntu 9.04 (Alpha 6). As expected there were numerous depedendency issues.
Piratesmack looked in to the same possibilty and together we pooled our resources and after running many scripts and testing by myself Piratesmack compiled some dependency free deb. packages.
Piratesmacks Beryl 0.2.1 deb. packages for Ubuntu 9.04
Save to home directory
Piratesmacks Beryl 0.2.1 deb. packages for Ubuntu/Mint
Save to home directory
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
Beryl 0.2.1 on Ubuntu 9.04
Beryl 0.2.1 on Mint 6
One thing you cannot do is knock the simplicity of Beryl and how much more useful it is than modern day Compiz.
So for those who wish to mock I say Beryl is far from dead and people want it as they are downloading it for the very reasons I have outlined above.
