Is someone forcing people with slower computers to enable all eye-candy the UI 
offers? If someone runs KDE with a slower computer (like I do, on a 300Mhz 
P2) he can just disable the eye-candy. If you run KDE on a fast machine (like 
I do, 2.2GHz Athlon64 with 1GB of RAM), you can then enable all the 
features/eye-candy the UI has to offer.

I don't think that progress of features/eye-candy should be held back by those 
people who still use old computers. Those people can either upgrade their 
computers (really, modern PC is not THAT expensive), disable the eye-candy or 
continue to use the software they are currently using. If we designed our 
UI's so that it's always usable to that guy who still uses a 60Mhz Pentium, 
we would still be using TWM!
