Wish list: 10 improvements for KDE 4.2

Posted by: Anonymous [ip:] on September 13, 2008 04:59 PM
if you launch a full-screen 3-D game, desktop effects aren't needed while the game is running. In that instance, desktop effects should be paused until the program has closed. Even if you are running a 3-D game that isn't full screen in an active window, desktop effects may still hamper performance, so they should be disabled while it's running.You will be able to rate each game that you Play games . We hope to provide top games only and hope that you will also give us some good games as you can submit a game of your choice and a game that you like
True that some people like effects, and true that most of the time you get tired of them soon. I like the effects but I like more the meaning of having these effects, having compiz like stuff, even if you may switch it off at times, means that 3D is not just a weird options for some Linux geeks but that it will be build into most linux distros allowing for then to be ready to play games out of the box: Yes, compiz alikes slow down your googleearth a bit or your games quite a lot, but now your desktop is 3D ready and you are using your X's 3D ready driver, its easier to switch compiz off than to have to start testing glxgears/glxinfo to see if you have a 3D capable driver, install it and then run your game.
