Gnome The future of GNOME - an interesting subject. GNOME 3 has been out and about for a while, and it hasn't exactly been a smashing success. One of the efforts to take GNOME to the next level is what the team refers to as GNOME OS - but in reality, it's a set of improvements to GNOME that are just as interesting to GNOME-the-desktop-environment.

I did not use desktop effects though since i had an old Radeon 8500.

There's your reason. KDE 4 doesn't like running on low-end, shared-memory integrated graphics chipsets.

Uhm, the Radeon 8500 is not an integrated chipset, it's a separate video card. It only supports OpenGL 1.x, though, which is why you have to disable Desktop Effects.

Which is exactly what I'm getting at. Most of my computers use integrated graphics chipsets, which KDE has problems with.
