Intel is famous for their poor quality video drivers for Linux.  Just 
run Wine with notepad and you will have some idea on what I am talking 
about.  Some of the more famous games that were ported to Linux don't 
work there either.  The recommended solution:  Get a video card with 
high quality Linux drivers.  Right now nVidia is leading the pack.

Even compiz complains when run on Intel 'on-board' video systems.
