X11, Window Managers A new acceleration architecture is being ported from kdrive by some QT developers, which will make composition managers like xcompmgr really fast and able to do some of the "display tricks" MacOS X has been doing for awhile.

RE: Qt gecko port

I think by the time it is out, will Konqueror feature a much faster/lighter/better renderer. The cooperation between apple hackers and KHTML/KDE people is getting better, with more and more bug fixes from safari bugzila being ported/reworked to KHTML. With the KHTML2 project with state of art SVG support, KDE will blow away any of the current desktops. I'm really looking forward for KDE4. Meanwhile gnome development is stuck with answering questions no one is asking, I mean give me a bloody KPDF equivalent not that peace of crap that acrobat is.
