Beryl/Compiz are window managers. They control position, size,
minimised, maximised, virtual desktops etc. 

Window managers are one part of the Gnome Desktop, which includes other
parts like the file manager (which manages the folders on your desktop),
the control panel, basic applications like gedit etc.

Currently the default window manager is Metacity which is 2D, by using
Beryl/Compiz you are replacing this part.

Hope this answers your question.
