Mutter is the clutter-based evolution of Metacity, which, as the author says, is a "Boring window manager for the adult in you. Many window managers are like Marshmallow Froot Loops; Metacity is like Cheerios."
This package contains the core binaries.
Mutter Compositor =================== Mutter includes a compositor based on Clutter. Mutter by default adds very simple effects using the compositor, such as a drop-shadow. The compositor may be used by plugins to add more effects. GNOME Shell is an example of one such plugin. The compositor can be enabled on the fly by setting the gconf key /apps/mutter/general/compositing_manager to true by us more»
Metacity is not a meta-City as in an urban center, but rather Meta-ness as in the state of being meta. i.e. metacity : meta as opacity : opaque. Also it may have something to do with the Meta key on UNIX keyboards. The first release of Metacity was version 2.3. Metacity has no need for your petty hangups about version numbers. The stable releases so far are 2.4.x, 2.6.x, 2.8., 2.8.1.x, 2.8.5 more»
