8 Don't even bother trying KDE4 if you have a recent nVidia card. Performance is
9 atrocious as KDE4 uses acceleration effects in plasma etc that nVidia didn't
10 account for in their driver, with the results that significant amounts of
11 rendering are done using a software path (i.e. not in hardware), which is very
12 slow.
14 There also doesn't appear to be any quick fix coming anytime soon.
