Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Yes, yes, it's that time of the year again - a new Fiona Apple album confirmed (which makes anything that happens between now and spring 2011 irrelevant and annoying), MorphOS 2.6 released (will be the next news item), and, of course, a new Ubuntu release showcasing the best of the best that the Free software world has to offer in the desktop world.

A whole Software Compilation can't perform. Or do you have performance problems with Marble, Kopete, KWrite/Kate, Blogilo, Gwenview, Okular,...?
I certainly don't and I find said applications among the best, if not the best, in their respective cathegories.

Judging by your comment you have problems with KWin which may has bugs itself or triggers bugs in Xorg/Mesa/Catalyst.
If Metacity, Mutter, or Compiz works well for you, the logical conclusion is to use either window manager instead of KWin. Since pretty much all window managers are easily interchangeable, doing so is a no brainer. System Settings even has a control module to select a window manager.

I think your technical knowledge is good enough to be able to distinguish between problems with the window manager itself and a bundle of applications. So please write something along the lines of "KWin doesn't perform well foe me" or one might be inclined to call you troll even though you didn't mean to.

Don't twist words in my mouth. I never wrote that Thom is a troll. I wrote that comments about KWin written in a way that they can be understood as generalizing comments about the whole Software Compilation can be incorrectly perceived as trolling.

OTOH you called me a fanboy who spreads passive-aggressive bullsh*t after I posted a pretty neutral comment about interchangeability of X11 window managers and no single comment in which I speak negatively about GNOME, Ubuntu, or anything beside the fact that I find the other Ubuntu variants newsworthy.
Considering your insult reflex, I think you're the actual fanboy here.

So...... Someone asks someone else to explain exactly what they mean by slow (i.e. what is slow?) and that's passive aggressive behaviour?

Wow.
