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.

If *everything* was slow, sure, blame the drivers. However, I find it very hard to believe it is just the drivers' fault if only one toolkit ever seems to have a problem.

You can try another variable - the drivers and the graphics chipset - as has been explained quite a few times in this thread and as I'd explained in another post. If it's KDE 4's fault then if you vary the graphics driver and the chipset then the issues should remain. They don't. ATI's Linux drivers are junk right now if you expect everything to work well.

Either you can't face up to the fact that ATI's Linux driver support is pretty useless or you're labouring on this for reasons that are best known to you.
