After reading your e-mail i decided to give KDE another go. I normally
use WindowMaker in combination with the Gnome-Panel (you can see some
screenshots at http://www.hentges.net/linux_look.html).

All previous encounters with KDE were less than acceptable for me.

But now with 3.1 i have to say "WOW" ( and a mighty big WOW at that!)
This thing is *fast*. I'm running it on display :1 on a 600er Celeron
with a mere 256MB of RAM with WindowMaker and *lots* of open programs on
display 0.

No more sluggishness of Konqueror. This thing responds faster than
Windows (which in the case of KDE never has been the case before).

I've heard of KDE 3.1 being now more responsive but i would never have
guessed such a huge improvement. 

/me bows to the KDE developers.
