I don't know if it's off-topic, but I understand the speed problem with effect enabled on asus 1001px.
I disabled blur and now I can enabled cube animation and all other effects.

Yeah, the powers that be at Debian have to decide that it's "stable" enough.

Currently at 41 RC bugs... Have to get that down to 0 (I'm betting on later this month).

On the danger of sounding uninformed - what are the decisive differences between our present KDE and KDE 4.10?

you start both sessions (our 4.8.4 and 4.10) and don't see major differences: the panel is in the same place, the menu is the same, the notification area is familiar (and this is a good thing: the desktop paradigm is the same, we didn't go in reinventing the wheel like other DEs)

then you notice that 4.10 is snappier, lighter on the hardware and that is due to a lot of work done improving specially kwin and akonadi but also all the other applications.

already with 4.9.5, but improved a lot with 4.10, the semantic desktop is now a reality and doesn't require a supercomputer or slow your "average" machine to a crawl.

and then there's the general and huge improvement and refining of the core applications: dolphin, kate, konsole, gwenview, digikam, marble (ohh lots and lots of others)

and of course a new wallpaper :lol:

The new wallpaper's the most important part :mrgreen: . I actually did a whole new Arch install the day KDE 4.10 entered into Arch just to get that wallpaper (with KDE 4.10).
