    agreed other than Inyuasha and maybe Yu Yu Hakashu, which while Inyuyasha mediocre in quality wasn't for the purpose of selling stuff and is more like Dragon Ball or The Slayers.

    Let's see... Robotech (The Macross season, not the latter two), Neon Genesis Evangelion, The Slayers, Magic Knights Rayearth, Ruroni Kenshin, Rune Explorers, Dai Guard, Tsukikage Ran (Ran is the best character ever created, seriously she's just awesome and not because of some super power or anything (other than skill she has no such thing) just on sheer personality alone), The Irresponsible Captain Tylor (Tylor is awesome too)....

    You call most of those good anime? Yeesh you were limited in your viewing. I mean Yu-Gi-Oh like pokemon and all shows in that vein were crap, and the Shojo you're listing doesn't qualify as good at all. I have nothing against Shojo and actually like it for the most part but at least go with something actually good like any of the CLAMP titles such as Magic Knights Rayearth.

    If you want to try some actually good anime try some of the following: Carried By the Wind: Tsukikage Ran, Kara No Kyoukai, The Irresponsible Captain Tylor, Those Who Hunt Elves (Note that it is imperative that you never let someone walk in on you while watching this one, there's nothing bad in the show but unless you know the premise... well... they won't understand), Ghost In The Shell, You're Under Arrest (Only the AnimeEgo stuff ADV totally misunderstood the series and ruined it), Gunsmith Cats, Gunslinger Girls (haven't watched the anime yet but the Manga is good), pretty much anything by Makoto Shinkai (a man who almost singlehandedly made the anime movie: Voices of A Distant Star), Desert Punk, Wolf's Rain, Dirty Pair, Bubblegum Crisis, and Appleseed.

    Also here let me introduce you to a company called Funimation they've currently becoming if they have not already become the largest publisher of Anime, except as a company they're one of the few good publishers. They actually for instance understand the internet and so they allow you to watch most of their catalogue free with ads and even allow you to watch shows that are currently airing right now in japan at the same time as it airs in Japan. http://www.funimation.com/videos/episodes

    Nice.

    This is like science. The scientists has figured out something. Now the engineers should figure out how to use it on real world.

    Read my post. It is not just the hardware but also the driver. On hardware there is still some stuff around that can't really do newest and shiniest OpenGL 4+ or even 3. Furthermore there is still quite a bunch of hardware that does not have fully working drivers. And now look at the growing, not to say already vast ocean of embedded chips. There a good lot of them that will barely see any actually working driver. Imagination Technology anyone? And no, a blob that works on an - no, maybe just ONE - ancient kernel and an ancient X version does not count.

    You are probably fine with a system using AMD (free or blob), nvidia or (genuine!!) intel (not the poulsbo shit). But apart from that chances drop. And especially "embedded" systems do not have fancy PCI slots where you can just exchange the GPU. No, all soldered in SMD size on a mainboard and you live and die with what is soldered there.

    Yeah, I'm really interested in the ability of Plasma2 to have different shells and seamless shifting between at runtime, there's a lot of cool stuff that that allows but what I really want is a Plasma2 shell that can do this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FjuPn7MXMs because that's so awesome even if probably not that practical.

    Maybe not exactly FPS style, but it's something big corps were thinking about. IIRC Apple even filled some patent papers for cube-like 3D desktop with windows free-floating inside. With advanced controlers like kinect it even could make a sense for mediacenter and likes.
    Just think you could manipulate windows and it's content just like real objects with gestures of hands.

    Rhetorical like this doesn't help make your case. "Maintainable" means "changing one thing doesn't break a lot of other random stuff". It means "it takes less time, effort, and coding to fix bugs or implement new features". The fact of the matter is that plasma can do a lot of stuff that would simply have been infeasible with the old system. There is no way they could have done something like the modern krunner, activities, many of the widgets (especially not in kicker), the netbook, media center, or tablet interfaces, etc. And even basic bug fixes ended up breaking other stuff in random and unexpected ways.

    And that's exactly what compositing is: Making the window manager run on the GPU instead of wasting the CPU for window management!
    And when exactly (OpenGL composited) KWin offloading CPU for windows management under X? Since backing store is here, it uses more CPU cycles even for moving windows.

    I've seen most of the stuff you listed, I only listed the stuff I was able to watch as a kid as that is what Ericg was implying was in his list. Nobody here had the internet at home when I was a kid, hell I was one of the only people that had a computer at home at the time, having dumpster dived and repaired a 286SX and a 486DX when I was 12. The VHS tapes where too expensive at $30 each at the Suncoast so we had Toonami at the one kid who's parents had cable TV with the package that had Cartoon Network and what little we could manage to agree on watching on school computers with incredibly an slow connection that half the time someone either killed the download or turned the machine off, they where setup so that they reverted back to a clean state at boot so nothing could be saved. None of the comps had burners or Zip drives and none of us could afford one at those times anyways. Only option was 1.44Mb floppy disks.

    So yeah, as a kid our viewing options where limited, but you could find allot of really crappy animes on other channels that we could get with OTA or basic cable.
