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.

I hate that OpenBSD doesn't want to have a real installer.


Let me guess... you want a crappy GUI installer. No thanks.

The OpenBSD installer is a breath of fresh air compared to every other OS I've had to install over the years.

I want sensible defaults and clear, concise explanations.
Sysinstall and Debian Installer are lovely.

Try the installer with 4.8 or -current. It has been simplified even more so than it already was.

I hate both of those installers.
