Default Re: is the nvidia driver falling behind?

Well, a lot of the KDE people blamed NVIDIA for their slow 2D performance. The thing is, it wasn't only down to NVIDIA.

Qt dropped to to slower rendering in certain situations. The Oxygen window boarder has a performance bug which makes KDE4 laggy. Honestly, newer KDE4 versions are worse with laggy window resizing and general usage and not purely because of the NVIDIA binary driver.

One of the worst apps for this is Amarok2. The redraw speed is terrible on resize and reaction for the systemtray. Scrolling in a playlist is horrible.
