Qt Trolls (the Trolltech ones) are blogging about a technology preview of the UI designer for QML, integrated to Qt Creator. A youtube video is provided. QML, accompanied by an UI designer, provides an open alternative for piecing together flash-like high-FPS programs with heavily customized and animated user interfaces, built on QGraphicsView framework. While QML allows authoring the whole program in QML markup and Javascript, QML can be incorporated to Qt C++ programs with relative ease.

Believe me, I tried all the workarounds. I ran Git master X.org as well as distro provided. Different amounts of suckage.

I know what Aaron said, but that's a terrible excuse. If the same excuse were applied to hardware, then software just wouldn't work at all. You have to have workarounds and hacks...that's just life. Throwing up your hands and not even trying to get Qt and KWin to work on actual hardware with actual drivers is a non-solution. In the real world, you do that and you get fired. Of course, Aaron belongs to that camp that thinks KDE is perfect and any problems are either because of the users or the underlying OS. Well, the underlying OS may not be perfect, but that's no excuse not to make it work. Same goes for users. If your software is so messy that users easily start making mistakes, then perhaps the software needs to be fixed.

Anyways, the point is that I've waited years for this stuff to work and it still doesn't and more scarily, there's a strong sentiment in the community that the problem doesn't exist or that it's someone else's fault.

well , in this case , it isnt kde's fault !!!

trust me , kde4 in an intel 945 ( really low low video card ) just flys !!!

its because users like you are complaining and finding things unusable that xorg 3d is being improved. if nobody complains, it probably wouldnt be improved like it is now.

and that was the case with compiz. it used the problems of xorg and hacked around it, and nobody complained.

there should be major improvements in 2.6.33 kernel for dri with radeon video cards. maybe you dont have to wait much longer.

i had to be patient in the EXA -> UXA and KMS problems of the intel video card. they were worked out, and now its great.

i guess the same must happen to your video drivers.

its like blaming the mirror ... its not the mirrors fault.

kde4 has alot of bugs , every software does. but in this case, its not its problem.

even compiz is / was completly rewritten from scratch because of the so many hacks and bugs it was using.
how do you expect that a major new development framework like kde4 be based on the old problems of xorg ?

its like complaining that window 7 isnt fully compatible with windows 95

anyway ... i do understand your resentment , but i think you are resenting the wrong party here. kde is not responsible for the 3d in xorg drivers.

The utter lack of manpower for X.org is a major problem, fine, I agree. But, you see, I want to get things done without crashing and slowness. So instead of waiting and hoping that one day the graphics drivers might be capable of running an effin' desktop environment, I will instead use Windows where it already works.
