Your statement contradicts the KDE developers; clearly there was some code that was "boggin down the system" in some cases.


Indeed there was. The new code will be faster.

This does not mean that the previous code was unacceptably slow or overly bogged down. It wasn't ... KDE has been perfectly useable and more than acceptably fast and snappy for some time now.

Kubuntu 11.10: "Right off the bat the first thing I noticed is that it is extremely snappy. Really, really snappy and responds extremely well. I was pretty impressed with just how smooth everything was."
