KDE "After years of focusing on further improving KDE4 two weeks ago the developers of the free desktop announced the next big step for their project: KDE Frameworks 5.0. But as long-time developer - and Plasma team leader - Aaron Seigo points out in an interview with derStandard.at/web, the source-incompatible changes shall be held to a minimum. Also calls Frameworks 5.0 only the "first step", new Applications and Workspace releases are to follow later, Seigo goes on to talk about the chances in the mobile market with Plasma Active and further areas of collaboration with the other big free desktop: GNOME."

the only problem with your analisys is that you must be running KDE 4 with composite enabled.

To compare it to both systems, you have to disable it entirelly.

Also e17 although it does fancy shadows, it doesnt provite composite except enabling the "bling" module.

to me KDE4 runs amazingly well with a 1ghz cpu and an intel 945.

also on my GF's eeepc.


maybe its just you ! ;)

PS : ( but i understand you, because just switching from opensuse 11.4 to gentoo + git xorg made a complete diference in performance on my desktop)
