    Probably because off site links that aren't in line ads are incredibly rare in Phoronix articles due to Larabel's ad whoring?

    There isn't. That just a speedily hacked together tech demo using existing Qt sample code. If you took just a minute of time to actually read the article, you would've known that!

    Part of the agreement, Funk, is that the codedrop is BSD, but copyright is assigned to KDE. So they could just switch the entire thing over to (L)GPL in a heartbeat if they chose to. So no, "Freedom isnt fucked"

    Best part; He knows how to make the KDE crowd do alot of clicks. Just write PERFORMANCE or AWESOME in head lines about KDE. They take the bait everytime. KDE is Digias bitch as the ubuntu lovers are Marks bitches.

    Pro-tip: Fire up OpenOffice and mySQL on Kubuntu and you can be gang CLA-raped.

    What part of "TECH DEMO" Did you not understand Kivada? It was said like 4 times in the article (not michaels, the actual one). All the video is doing is showing off what you can do with the new SceneGraph and how easy and fluid it is.

    And you don't want openCL for everything-- the GUI should be done on the GPU since thats GRAPHICS, and the actual code should be done on the CPU. 2 processors doing 2 different things means neither one can lock up the other.

    I see two drawbacks here:
    1. It needs a OpenGL capable GPU and(or) a driver doing as well.
    2. For now it is pure eyecandy which is nice but will this increase my personal experience, my work performance, KDE's performance, usability, stability? Will it interfere with other GPU hogs?

    The Qt5 things require opengl, yes, but QtWidgets (Qt4) doesn't and they wont be removed until ATLEAST Qt6. And by then there really shouldnt be anything that isnt OpenGL capable..

    It will slow down other applications which use OpenGL for something useful.

    CDE is open source nowadays.

    Or just use utilize resources that otherwise are sitting around doing nothing and have minimal if not no effect on other applications.
