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.

If he's talking about KWin and its native in-built composition effects and stuff, then he's probably right. It's slow as a fat dog, broken and stupid, even with your latest greatest proprietary graphic driver working. It's a plain mess.

I would advise him to replace KWin with Compiz. Of course, all of this has to be manually set up, and it can be annoying as hell. Last time I tried KDE it was demanding more RAM than GNOME, so there is this as well.

Since this is not machine related as he speaks, I can only think this is what he is talking about...

Which effects? Which driver? Which version of Xorg? Which kernel version? Which hardware?
