KDE In his lengthy and interesting blog post covering the future of Plasma, KDE's Aaron Seigo proposes Qt Quick and QML (a declarative language that embeds JavaScript) as replacement of the Graphics View architecture currently used by Plasma. This holds a promise of massive speedups and cheap effects as all paint operations become candidates for OpenGL acceleration, contrary to the aging Graphics View architecture that is still stuck with various inefficiencies caused by the underlying QPainter approach. Expressiveness and easy programmability of QML is a nice bonus, of course.

I think you are forced to move to QML at least you want to mantaint all the legacy code your self. Witch I don't think it will be the case.

But what kind of Nokia employee would you be if you had no faith in the toolkit your employeer mantains?

I just can't avoid to compare KDE4 with with DukeNukem Forever.

Peace, and I wish you a flawless migration.
