Yea but I would leave all the eye candy turned on most likely. I sort
of like the eye candy stuff, as long as it works. Heck, I like a lot of
the stuff about KDE 4, I just need to wait until for the geeks that
program it to get some more stuff working. After all, KDE 4 is really a
little baby right now. It's crawling right now. I expect it to start
walking soon, then start running a little after that. In several months
KDE 4 will be all grown up and ready for track try outs.
I didn't expect any less of KDE 3 when it came out. It took them a good
while to get KDE 3 working good. They did tho. If I need to upgrade my
video card, I can handle that. I'll just get the fastest AGP video card
I can get at a reasonable price and put that little puppy in. I plan to
build a new rig soon. It most likely will have a quad core AMD CPU and
a few GBs of ram. That should make KDE 4 really happy. :-)
Of course, for people that have older rigs than I do, they may have to
stick with KDE 3 somehow or move to something else for a GUI. Heck, I
have had Fluxbox and Gnome on here before. I just don't like them much
but they are faster, especially Fluxbox.
