The compiz project is run by Canonical now, and is not seen very much
outside of Ubuntu. Whether that is for technical or licensing or
political reasons I do not know.

For KDE 4 users, the native window manager has many features found in
compiz. GNOME 3 has a compositing window manager built into the
shell(!), so compiz wouldn't work with it anyway,
