Run this past me very slowly, KDE 4 the new flagship desktop was shipped

which explodes periodically on this list...

As has been said many many many times, KDE4.0.4, and KDE4.1 are KDE
Desktops in development. KDE4.1 is NOT the final be-all-end-all of
KDE4. The KDE4 desktop is a from-scratch re-write to take advantage
of QT4 and to clean up the spaghetti code and useless kruft from years
of development on the previous code tree. This means that yes bits
are still missing... including the soon to be added back in ability to
have different wallpapers on each desktop (plus more). The developers
are bringing the missing bits back as quickly as they can with the
rewritten code and the replacement features showing up almost daily.

With the latest updates, 3D (I.E., GL) screen savers run in a small
window in the upper left corner with the rest of the screen white. This
with nVidia....same thing happens on Intel video.
