    Phoronix: KDE SC 4.6.2 Codename Is Dedicated To GNOME 3.0

    KDE Software Compilation 4.6.2 has been released as the latest monthly point release to the KDE SC 4.6 desktop. It contains the usual bug-fixes, translation updates, and other smaller items that can be safely pushed prior to KDE SC 4.7 this summer. This month's release is also dedicated to the GNOME community for their major GNOME 3.0 release due out today...

      This is like when the Spurs were rooting for the Phoenix Suns because they had beaten them like a drum for the past 5 years LOL!!!

      All jokes aside... I really hope Gnome 3 does well. Nothing inspires innovation like healthy competition. Plus, I like the option of switching DE's if KDE pisses me off, or vice versa.

          Cake

          I think I prefer the tradition the Internet Explorer developers have, of sending their Mozilla rivals cake to celebrate a major release.

            I know that this particular post may pack very little value, but I just can't help myself…
            How sweet!

            You can't imagine how happy it makes me to witness how noble can people be when they want to.

              If only they would find the time to fix kmail... and ktimetracker, and improve KWin's compositing performance on radeons, and all the multi monitor shortcomings it has and... etc.

                Why should unpaid KWin developers fix a driver that's developed by full-time developers working for and paid by a giant corporation?
                You're not making sense.

                Btw, following the economics of a free market: If you can't fix problems yourself, you can always hire someone to do it for you.

                  Because they care about their users?

                        Not true. When KDE4 arrived gnome fanbois were bitching it all the time. Even some gnome developers were doing the same. Now, it's completely opposite and KDE folks wishes Gnome to succeed. This is just great example of different mentality in mentioned camps.

                              Let me refrase what I said earlier, as you clearly didn't understand:

                              I wish KDE developers would fix KWin's (notice that I said KWin and not radeon driver, as in "fix kwin", not "fix driver") bad performance on radeons. Don't tell me it's a problem in the drivers because every other 3D application I've tried runs as expected on my HD4200. And it's not a matter of compositing managers in general on KDE, because Compiz runs fluidly. It's also not a problem of drivers because it runs equally bad on both OSS radeon and FGLRX. Sure it's not a very powerful GPU, but even an old Athlon XP + Radeon 9500pro offers a better experience on the OSS drivers with compiz.
