Can you elaborate? If you're referring to the old-school rubberband effect, that certainly isn't the only option, and I don't think it was enabled by default for me either. Maybe you're actually seeing a distribution default configuration issue?
FWIW I'm enjoying smooth and quite snappy opaque window resizing with compiz.
