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.

Basically, use an Intel chipset and your distro's drivers or an nVidia chipset with a recent driver. Your mileage might vary with ATI, but you'll be hopping around with the ati, radeonhd and fglrx drivers and stuff like Xv will still be broken or working poorly.

I *am* using an NVIDIA card (6200, 128MB dedicated RAM) with a recent driver, and KDE 4 is STILL showing BAD performance. Resizing especially is unusable, and various other animations are jittery.

The exact same card with the exact same driver has NO problems with Compiz - which is smooth as butter.
