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 wish d-i would ask me all the questions up front, and it's got its roots in sysintsall's interface, so that's got similar issues.

However, I could hand it and a readme off to a friend who's never installed an OS and they'd probably walk away with a working install, and I can use it to do most install tasks.
