    Phoronix: Using KWin To Power Other Non-KDE Linux Desktops

    For those interested in ditching Compiz or other window managers in favor of KDE's KWin, it is actually possible to do so and use KWin on your favorite non-KDE desktop...

    I prefer compton which is a liteweight compiz replacement and provides a flickering and tear free experience that feels so smooth as using wayland but still on X

    They shown interest in picking KWin5 up in the future, however nothing is set in stone. For now they still use OpenBox.

    Excellent! In the future I will remove xorg-server, install Wayland and use it as a window manager. But for now, I'll stuck with X11 and my Fluxbox wm. Hope this come soon in Gentoo! :-)

    That's funny because I just started using kde4 over kde3.5 with the new OpenSuSE 13.1 release. Besides how settings are handled and having to install stealth cashew, I'm really impressed with how smooth and stable everything runs on my ThinkPad with a i5/HD4000. I still miss my old 3.5 but it is really starting to show it's age.
