KDE 4 does not require compositing. If you turn it off, it still looks

So how do you turn it off?

Configure Desktop, (Look and Feel) Desktop, first check box under
Desktop Effects, General tab.
KDE4 has shown zero benefit over KDE3 so far.
That may change, and hopefully will.

There is one big one- KDE4 is being actively developed. KDE3 is no
longer. Even though the changes are seemingly more significant, this
has been the main reason to change since KDE 1. Bugs will be fixed in
KDE4, it has and is getting better all the time.
