Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Yes, yes, it's that time of the year again - a new Fiona Apple album confirmed (which makes anything that happens between now and spring 2011 irrelevant and annoying), MorphOS 2.6 released (will be the next news item), and, of course, a new Ubuntu release showcasing the best of the best that the Free software world has to offer in the desktop world.

Except that release after release, finger-pointing after finger-pointing, KDE 4 still performs like a dog. First I had to wait for an updated ATI driver. Didn't fix it. Then I had to wait for the next release. Didn't fix it. Then I had to use the open source driver. Didn't fix it. Then I had to use the next version of the open driver. Didn't fix it. Then I had to wait for the next release again. Didn't fix it. And in between, I was instructed to use distribution Abc, Xyz, or Mno. Neither of them fixed it. I even tried multiple computers - old, new, laptop, desktop. Didn't fix it.

Maybe 4.6 will finally actually be usable, but after so many bites, I'm not holding my breath.


What specifically "runs like a dog" Thom?

It performs very well for me even in a Parallels VM with no acceleration whatsoever due to the Parallels Tools not supporting xorg 1.9.
