KDE The KDE team has released KDE 4.3. This release comes packed with improvements and bug fixes - in fact, over the last six months, 10000 bugs were squashed, 2000 feature requests handled, and 63000 changes were checked in by 700 people. We've already talked about this new release in quite some detail last week, but let's take a look at the most important new features anyway.

RE[8]: Great!

So.... Lemur2 does not actually *have* a system which performs well with KDE4. He's certainly never mentioned that before. He's only going on what he's heard other people claim then.

Why would you say this?

I have two desktop systems where KDE performs very well, one with ATI graphics and a dual-core AMD64 CPU and the other with legacy nvidia graphics and an Intel Pentium CPU. I have no idea exactly why these particular systems are fine with KDE4, but the fact is they are.

I also have a number of different netbooks with Intel GMA graphics where the performance is (currently) quite mundane (but not utterly unusable, after taking a bit of care in de-selecting certain desktop effects, but making sure to still enable compositing).
