Oke, i installed it now and this is the best KDE ever for me.
I can actually get used to this version ^_^

The first thing i did is set folder view as my desktop.
there is something strange in kde. I have a 8600GT (nvidia) card and
installed the drivers yet all the graphical effects seem to be
slowish..
Another slow thing is the slection stuff. if you made your desktop a
folder view desktop you can click your mouse in the upper left corner,
hold it, drag down to the lower right and everything in that desktop
gets selected. but men that seems to go SLOW! it seems like it's not
even using hardware acceleration. I did that small test a second time
with the top tool in a console next to it. i had 99% xorg usage! so
something is wrong or off.. i just can't find out what it is.

I also enabled the FPS plugin (kwin stuff) and that is going anywhere
from 0 fps to 59/60

Any ideas what's wrong?
