    Also, has nepomuk stopped being an atrocious resource hog yet? I appreciate the idea, but last time I tried it (which I think was KDE 4.4.3), it was eating a stupid amount of CPU/RAM/disk.
    As far as I can tell, nepomuk has stopped being a horrible resource hog. It may use more resources at first but once everything is indexed, from then on it doesn't use much at all. At least on my desktop.

    ~5-7 seconds on a quad core Phenom machine.
    ~3 seconds on a dual Xeon workstation.

    During the 4.6 beta phase I re-enabled it (including strigi) on both machines after having it disabled since, err, it was released.
    After a short burst of activity (presumably, initial indexing), I no longer see it.

    FYI, both machines run Fedora 14/x86_64 and KDE 4.6 RPMS from kde-redhat/unstable.

    Does anybody know if it plays nice with Nvidia graphics cards? I really like KDE but 4.X so far has had issues with Nvidia cards, things like slowdowns for no reason and Kscrensaver won't come up 95% of the time, though I prefer Xscreensaver anyway, but it would still be nice if Kscreensaver worked.

    I might have to try it out after Mint 10 KDE is released.

    Nah... that would only happen if it was bad news about KWin or if Ubuntu switched to KDE.

    I've seen some blog posts and reports that KWin 4.6 works much better with NVidia drivers as they have put in some workarounds the problems that these drivers have. But I can't say first-hand since it has been quite some time since I had a NVidia card, all AMD/ATI here and all work fine with open source drivers, even the old Radeon 9600 in my 6 year old computer.

    Wouldn't be surprised if Ubuntu shipped kdelibs-mobile in a year or so.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft bought a Linux Distribution after a while.

    Seems to work perfect here on openSUSE, although never had any real issues since KDE 4.2 and those were not video card related.

    I think Nvidia has acknowledged the issues and thus are working to fix them, so hopefully the newest ones will work better with Kwin

    I'm not aware of any outstand issues between KDE 4.x and nVidia.
    (In short, works for me - though I rarely use anything between the basic blank screensaver)
