[ubuntu] Certain compiz effects in metacity - possible?

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello all, looking into desktop customization, currently using Gnome fallback as I can't stand unity. There are a few effects in compiz I really like, but overall it gobbles too much ram, so is it possible to enable some like it in metacity, or some other light-weight alternative? In particular I am interested in multiple desktops, desktop grid and snapping windows (able to make a window take exactly half of a virtual desktop using hotkeys/dragging to the right edge) (Hardware)
