    KDE SC 4.6.2 Codename Is Dedicated To GNOME 3.0

    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...

    I guess nobody is going to look at porn or play games when they should be working anymore... business owners are going to love the lack of minimization.

    I just can't adapt to such behavior. Maybe if Gnome 3 will be my first DE in entire life this will be different. Btw. sometimes you just have to minimize quickly.

    Yes, because of some idiot who thought he will help bsd to gain more attention.

    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.
    Compiz and XFCE's compositing run perfectly fine on my ati with both fglrx and the oss drivers. Kwin runs horribly. I Don't think it's all ati's fault, especially considering the oss driver is just as bad. I am sure KWin can do something to fix this or at least have some sort of workaround if it is caused by a driver issue.

    As Awesomeness mentioned, you should just avoid minimizing a window. Instead open the first window in the first workspace and the second in the second workspace. When you want to go back to the first windows, press ctrl + alt + up or let your mouse switch workspace for you.

It will be different if KDE would be entire Linux distribution, but it's not.

    The open source radeon driver just rocks with GS.
    Sorry for late response. I'm using radeon driver and GS works good on my computer. The problems I mentioned with slowness are not mine, but few other people. They're using nvidia and radeon. I saw there are bug reports at bugzilla about mentioned issues.

    I must also disagree with the lack of usability. I find GS something you have to get used to, but when you do, it is very easy and pleseant to use :-)

While Gnome Shell is something new in Gnome3 (for some it's step backward, but opinions are different) I noticed other applications remained the same.
