You people are so fanboyish. I already said that compiz uses opengl 1.4 while kwin uses opengl 3.0. Why you still cant get that nvidia poorly supports opengl 3 in linux? I really dont want to blame nvidia for all the problems, but take a look at nvidia bugs in linux, theres thousands of them. In fact theres no such slowdowns when using ati fglrx driver. Im starting to be disappointed that i recently bought nvidia, and your ignorance and saying that nvidia drivers are perfect and thats only kwin issue is such an absurdish statement.
