Re: Please stop that bashing...
...and as said so many times before, the problem didn't start with KDE4, or firefox 3. The problem was there already when the 8xxx-cards were released, thats about a year ago. I have had unaccaptable performance in gnome and in xfce since I got my laptop maybe about 9 month ago, though it have got worse with newer releases of desktop environments. Maybe it has not been noticeable with some of the newer cards until now, but with mine it has and I know that I'm not alone. The point to be made is that it have been more the enough time to fix the drivers but they haven't for some (to us) unknown reason.
