Hi Alex,

many thanks for doing this test (glad to hear that oxygen is not the 
biggest beast around :))

Now, to be honest, I'm not sure how 'relevant' the test is, and the 
outcome might well be very GPU related.
Oxygen, unlike QtCurve, uses a lot of QPixmap all over the place for 
rendering and caching, which is known to be quite expensive on some 
GPUs, and not at all on others.
Also, for the comparison to fusion, oxygen has tons of animations, which 
causes several (as opposed to one) localized repaints for basically each 
user interaction, and this will cost, naturally. (not sure what's the 
status of QtCurve with that respect).
In any case, I'd also be curious to see the outcome for the current 
breeze code (kde:scratch/hpereiradacosta/breeze), for which the 
rendering is supposedly much simpler than oxygen, and no caching is 
used. (but animations are there)
