KDE It slipped by us, but the KDE team has released another minor bugfix release of KDE 4.2, version 4.2.3, a few days ago. Being a bugfix release, there are few user-visible changes, but still, there are a few things that stand out. "Online IMAP filtering in KMail has been fixed, KMail's system tray icon now reacts to changes to folder properties and updates the number of emails shown there automatically, and bugfixes, performance improvements and optimization in KHTML - painting and interoperability with web standards has been further improved."

The Intel graphics found in most netbooks is not that flash, but nevertheless it IS a hardware-accelerated graphics GPU with a working driver.


Intel graphics cards seem to be a bit hit & miss. Running Jaunty on work machine (Dell Optiplex something with crappy intel chip I can't recall the model of right now), KDE is unusable. But so is Gnome unless you turn compositing off. On my home machine with nvidia card, everything is just zippy.

Intel graphics are in a transition stage right now, and they have had significant performance regressions of late. They weren't that good to begin with.
