KDE In his lengthy and interesting blog post covering the future of Plasma, KDE's Aaron Seigo proposes Qt Quick and QML (a declarative language that embeds JavaScript) as replacement of the Graphics View architecture currently used by Plasma. This holds a promise of massive speedups and cheap effects as all paint operations become candidates for OpenGL acceleration, contrary to the aging Graphics View architecture that is still stuck with various inefficiencies caused by the underlying QPainter approach. Expressiveness and easy programmability of QML is a nice bonus, of course.

Despite the fact that you are a huge troll and i dont like feeding trolls, i have to answer.

KDE is among biggest FOSS projects and is seriously used worldwide. However, its one of the few projects which are brave enough to be early adopters of new technologies. And also take part in developing them.

Since the beginning everyone complained why FOSS always 'follows' and never takes the lead.
Well, guess what, it takes some courage to develop new technologies and use them, before anyone else does.

A huge troll that until the KDE4 debacle, used to enjoy KDE.

Nice to see that the standard FOSS answer to everything is still to label people as trolls. Perhaps that's why 99% of computer users are just trolls and wouldn't touch an open source desktop with a ten-foot pole.

Keep it up, you're doing just great.

If you used to enjoy KDE, then why wouldn't you enjoy it now that it is better and more powerful than it has ever been?

Your response seems like pure deflection to me. You got accused of trolling so your best method of defense is attack, hey?

People are too smart for you. If they can run great software like KDE, have great performance and functionality for free, be free from viruses and malware, run a copy on as many machines as they please without fear of being pestered about licenses or plagued by endless adware, then they will go right ahead an do so, enjoy the benefits, and pay no heed at all to your silly debating bluffs.
