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.

Despite the fact that you are a huge troll and i dont like feeding trolls, i have to answer.

A huge troll that until the KDE4 debacle, used to enjoy KDE.

Nice to see that the standard FOSS answer to everything is still to label people as trolls. Perhaps that's why 99% of computer users are just trolls and wouldn't touch an open source desktop with a ten-foot pole.

Keep it up, you're doing just great.
