    Default KDE 4.2 Answers The Needs Of End-Users

    Phoronix: KDE 4.2 Answers The Needs Of End-Users

    A year after KDE 4.0 was released (with celebrations at the Google Plex) and six months after releasing KDE 4.1, the K Desktop Environment has now reached a new milestone. KDE 4.2 "The Answer" has been released, which the K Desktop Environment community is confident will even be able to satisfy the needs of normal non-technical end-users...

    So wait for 4.3?

    Sorry I couldn't resist. I'll be trying 4.2 with the next point release of my favorite distribution. KDE 3.5 will still be an option, Gnome not so much. I'm hoping for 4.2

    I have to say I'm not impressed by the performance. Even without compositing it's hardly usable. This is on two machines less than a year old with core2 duo processesors and 3GB of ram.

    I figure there must be something wrong here, but there doesn't appear to be. GNOME runs plenty fast, even with the compositor. Why is KDE so slow?
