No, you were saying compiz uses your cpu - we weren't talking about embedded 
devices at all at that stage.

Sorry, but that just doesn't make sense at all. If I'm doing web development 
I'll open multiple windows, a browser a couple of shells, if I'm doing c work 
I'll have a couple of shells, possibly glade running... these are all tools 
of the trade and compiz allows good clean management of those windows which 
can be spread over however many faces on your 'cube' you decide to have.

Maybe your laptop has a high res 24" screen where you can position each window 
in free space, mine doesn't.
