> If/when the eye candy gets out of the way 

Hi John,

With very little effort, you can disable the eye candy with one fell
swoop.  I started with it disabled and switched it on.  The graphics
card on my laptop isn't swanky.  I chose to go back to the NVIDIA
proprietary driver to get faster rendering over Nouveau.  Along the
way, I decided to switch on _some_ of the eye candy.  It's my choice
(which is what I always want, choice) to switch on as much or as
little eye candy.

The eye candy is a very small part of it all though.  I simply chose
to point out that I like choice.

I disagree.  I've followed 4.X to 4.5.3 and before 4.5, KDE didn't
meet my needs.  No big deal.  No one said _I_ had to switch from 3.5
(which I'm still using).  It's not until 4.5.3 do I find KDE is stable
enough for my needs.

In the end, it's all about choice.  There are many people working on
KDE and I want to publically thank them for all their effort.
