The one big change from 4.7 that im looking forward to (hence the
kubuntu ppa to get it as fast as possible) Is the rewrite of the
effects engine to use OpenGL ES. Should speed things up quite a bit;
hell I might even be able to play 3D games with effects turned on come
release time haha.

Just of curiousity, what distro do you use, Duncan? I'm looking for a
really nice KDE distro, right now ive got Suse and PCLinuxOS in VM's
and im testing them out. The one thing I do like about Kubuntu is that
with ppa's I can have like any package I want but I hate how outdated
some things are, like the kernel and powertop (im a laptop user)
