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.

Define "responsiveness", "snappy", "runs like shit", and other subjective terms. ;)

I can say "Windows 7 runs like a dog for me" just as easily as you can say "KDE 4 runs like a dog for me". But you don't give any information on WHAT runs like a dog.

Dragging windows around? I can do that on a netbook with KDE SC 4.5.1 without tearing. Sure, desktop effects are turned off, but so is Aero on Windows 7 on a netbook.

Resizing windows? Not an issue on a dual-monitor setup with KDE SC 4.5.1 and nvidia graphics. I do this a lot, as I use the drag-to-top-to-maximise feature a lot, especially when dragging from monitor to monitor. Desktop effects enabled, and a handful of effects in use.

Rotating desktops? Not an issue on the dual-monitor setup. And really catches the eyes of the co-workers walking by.

So, until you start defining what your issues are, with examples to back it up, you're really just a whiner we should all ignore.
