KDE still needs work

I tried KDE 11.04. KDE was very pretty, and seemed like a big improvement from the last time I tried it (4.2 or so).

My big issue is that every time I clicked on anything, whether it was to open a file or the K on the bottom left, my system took a half second to a full second to respond. This continued inside every application I tried.

I don't have this issue with Gnome or E17, just KDE4. It's too bad, but it was enough for me to delete the distro. Not too mention twice in 30 minutes I had to log out because the plasmoids locked up somehow.

This is with an ATI card with the closed drivers.
