If it is due to comopsiting, why not stop using that shit unteil it is fixed?
I have indeed been playing games in KDE for the Steam beta and it's been bliss. I appreciate the fact it's a powerful modern desktop with the ability to completely switch off compositing and I'm unsure why the others are moving away from that.
It really makes me sick to my stomach when I read about tens of peoples... wasting their time... for a decade... on multiple projects... that... provide some animations to system windows... each in its screwed up way!!! What do we have today, let's see: 2 decades old Xorg with Gnome+Unity+Compiz+whatnot on top. When did the slogan for linux become: obsoleteANDbuggy components? No wonder Lubuntu and CrunchBang got so popular these days. People choose DE's like LXDE not because they have outdated hardware but because they want to taste sanity!
edit: also.. Is it just me or has there been a massive increase in the number of trolls since that authoritarian bipolar guy claiming he was a soldier showed up a while back?
Wow this thread is a mess. KDE would be dead without Martin's work over the past years, yet he gets hate for a blog post about changing screen resolutions within games.
