My kids are asking me for #KDE on their laptop because they want wobbly windows that shatter into pieces when you close them. Do not underestimate the power of these kind of features to win users and make computing and tinkering fun!


@simon I use subtly wobbly / translucent windows, and the cube animation for switching virtual screens.

I feel that unintrusive animations are not just eye candy: they help me spacially track things, so my brain knows that my email is "behind the right corner" and I just need to rotate my screen to get to it.

I just think the default speed of animations is annoyingly slow, so I make them really fast!
