My favorite piece of eye candy was the "static" when opening the photo.
When the hell is somebody going to fix that, and whos fault is it?
X? WM? Graphics Driver?
it's getting old.
That was a custom patch that is included in Fedora and Ubuntu. It was not a problem of Qt, KDE, or even the X folks, it was making inappropriate use of a standard (i.e. breaking it) to slightly speed things up for compiz/gnome users. The patch is now reverted in Jaunty/9.04 and is NOT present in other distros.
