If only I had some mod points. It's true that the "delete" button doesn't actually delete anything, it just hides it from SOME parts of the site.

A few months later I got an angry message as someone found that "deleted" tweet.

The description may be a little confusing but "Plasma integration in KWin" means that KWin now uses the Plasma theme (Which by default is Air) for displaying popups such as alt+tab window switching, desktop effect text, etc. that all used to be unthemed.

In KDE 4.2 the "true desktop metaphor" has returned in full. To my knowledge you can now do everything that you could in 3.5 and a little bit extra. What sort of conflicts are you having with Compiz? KWin has been designed to happily not start when the user wants Compiz instead. The setting to change this can be found in "System Settings -> Advanced -> Session Manager" in 4.1 and "System Settings -> Default Applications" in 4.2.
