KDE For a very long time now, I've been on the hunt for a distribution that really put a lot of effort into their KDE4 implementation. This has been a frustrating search, full of broken installations, incredibly slow performance, and so many visual artifacts they made my eyes explode. Since KDE 4.3 is nearing release, I had to pick up this quest in order to take a look at where 4.3 stands - and I found a home in the KDE version of Fedora 11. Read on for a look as to where KDE 4.3 currently stands.

Resizing problem

Will be fixed in Qt 4.6, it is actually not a slowness, just how X handle resize. KDE3 and Gnome have an hack to speed it up. As most "hack" were dropped in the transition from KDE3 to 4, the old unofficial Qt-copy patch was dropped. Look like Nokia told Trolltech that it was annoying, finally (it will enter in officiel Qt tree). I saw a port on qt planet some time ago about that. X send only few resize request per second (on clock based timing), not everytime the size actually change (it make sense in 1990, but surely not 2 decade later).
