So the tiling support was dropped from developement version of KDE 4.10 and is going to be added back before 4.10. Sounds like exactly the way it should be done. KDE SC 4.9 still has tiling support and KDE 4.10 is going to have tiling support.Last but not least there is one important change for the 4.10 release. KWin’s window tiling capabilities which were implemented by a Season of KDE project a few years ago had to be removed again as the feature is seeing some bit rot and is completely unmaintained. Thanks to scripting it should be possible to implement window tiling again and provide it in time for 4.10. And work is going on to make that happen. If you want to help, please leave a note
Isn't Unity the resource hog king? So, why would people move from crap (KDE) or crap B (Gnome 3) to bigger crap (Unity)? I have read that some people are moving to XFCE and perhaps, LXDE. But, they have gtk connections and I often notice they often suffer from some of the same bugs or problems Gnome users have.
I wish the Gnome2 fork was more successful. At least, they didn't seem to focus on mobile devices or eye candy as much as the others.
I'd buy a real computer before I settled on LXDE. As far as I can tell, LXDE exists mainly to run on computers that were already considered crap around the time Windows XP came about.
Edit: Also, XFCE can be pretty obese depending on the distribution that is shipping it. Ubuntu's XFCE comes preloaded with a bunch of really godawful Unity crap and nonsense from GNOME 3.
Isn't the entire point of XFCE to be light and functional? Not many distributions strike that balance very well.
I tried out Fedora 18's spin of XFCE yesterday, and it's looking pretty good (there's still a few pieces of 4.9 left on the latest nightly, but you can upgrade those few packages and log otu and back in, and you can see what XFCE done right is looking like on a decent distribution.
Now, I did notice one odd thing. They don't ship the volume daemon running by default, but you can install that and add it to your start programs. Change the theme around a little bit, and you're good.

The kernel already has this exception when linking userspace interfaces.

First he forms an opinion on Radeon drivers from reading Phoronix forums, then he forms an opinion on KDE by reading Distrowatch comments. :rofl:
Of course, actually trying it and seeing that it's good would be too much work.
