KDE The KDE team has released KDE 4.3. This release comes packed with improvements and bug fixes - in fact, over the last six months, 10000 bugs were squashed, 2000 feature requests handled, and 63000 changes were checked in by 700 people. We've already talked about this new release in quite some detail last week, but let's take a look at the most important new features anyway.

"KDE4 absolutely flies on systems where the graphics stack works properly. Fastest desktop there is.

And how do I get to such a system? What parts? What drivers? I'm genuinely interested.

Frankly, I have no idea.

What I do know is that on some systems KDE4 absolutely flies. Faster than any other desktop.

By no means is this the case for all systems, but it is so for some.

The thing is ... this fact alone exonerates KDE4. You can have a situation where fast software is slowed down by something else on a particular system, but you cannot have a case where slow software is made fast on particular systems.

Ergo, KDE4 itself is not slow. If KDE4 itself was slow, it would be slow everywhere.
