Really glad to see stability and performance improvements listed as a goal in 4.8. I just wish they would dedicate a single release ONLY to stability and performance. Freeze all features and just concentrate on making the ones they already have work well without crashing or bogging down the system. Heck, *remove* some features if necessary to achieve it. Remember that stability and performance are the must-have features.

Edit: Oh, and by the way, a huge thanks to the KDE team for producing a product that still runs and acts the same even without 3D driver support. I HATE it when other systems require 3D drivers just to render menus or provide a bunch of superfluous effects.
