KDE "After years of focusing on further improving KDE4 two weeks ago the developers of the free desktop announced the next big step for their project: KDE Frameworks 5.0. But as long-time developer - and Plasma team leader - Aaron Seigo points out in an interview with derStandard.at/web, the source-incompatible changes shall be held to a minimum. Also calls Frameworks 5.0 only the "first step", new Applications and Workspace releases are to follow later, Seigo goes on to talk about the chances in the mobile market with Plasma Active and further areas of collaboration with the other big free desktop: GNOME."

What is wrong with usin a graphic card to manage display? It is the way it should have been all along, but in the x86 world, many seem to expect the CPU to handle everything... And that GPU should be for games only.

So we have a lot of "old" hardware with weak (or no) GPU, so yeah, I agree it is a gift to have lightweight WM like awesome; but in the end, everybody -Intel, AMD, all ARM designs- are going with integrated graphics. It is just a case of really different computations (here, massively parallel) better served by different silicon.

KDE has implimented windows tiling, by the way.
