Yes, I've run kde with compiz before. I prefer kwin and all of its useful composting tricks, like the psuedo aero snap.


Fair enough. Kwin in KDE 4.7 has lower OpenGL requirements, and so it should run faster, even on less capable hardware.

I'm thinking/have thought about moving to arch. I'm just a bit afraid it will end up like gentoo. I'm okay with being a few months off of the bleeding edge.


Also perfectly fair enough. Running Arch is indeed a case of "riding too close to the bleeding edge" for many people.
