    I also forgot to mention I get terrible lag on resizing in "normal mode" with the latest compiz, 0.8 was fine.

      in my point of view unity and gnome can die... i don't need it.
      I'm also a KDE user, and I love KDE 4.4 on my desktop. Despite many people says Kubuntu is a poor implementation of KDE, I prefer it over any other distro excepting a pure Debian.
      But I don't hate GNOME. My laptop runs Ubuntu 10.10 with GNOME 2.x, because is much faster, memory efficient, its NetworkManager applet works better that the KDE/Plasma version, and does not do stupid things like running the Nepomuk - Strigi megabloat by default.

        I dislike Pulseaudio; it makes KDE very unresponsive. Even if it's possible to run all KDE 4 apps over ALSA, they'll be muted the first time any Gtk-based app attempts to output sound (Firefox comes to mind).
        JACK is an excellent companion for KDE, but alas, GNOME apps use ESD (which bypasses Jack) or Pulseaudio (which can direct sound to Jack, but the implementation is flawed in Ubuntu).

        It's time for Ubuntu to use its might to blur the barriers between GNOME and KDE worlds, doing away with any technology designed to lock you in one side or another. Unity, despite all its errors, may be a first step in that direction.
