I am somewhat new to Ubuntu. I want to like it, I really do. I came from the world of KDE where Kwin is the windows manager. Kwin is awesome for many reasons, one being that if a window or application misbehaves, you can simply kill it with a simple hot key. My experiences with Compiz is, if a window misbhaves, that's it; it's over. You can't simply switch workspaces and kill the window, you can't strike a hotkey to kill the window, you can't even ctrl-alt F2 to get into the terminal.
This cannot be the way it was designed; I must be doing something wrong. How on earth can Ubuntu or Compiz allow sone simple misbehaving window to bring down the entire operating system?
