Pimping my Desktop: have KWin Desktop Effects improved in KDE 4.6.2?

Filed under
KDE

fitzcarraldoblog.wordpress: KWin Desktop Effects in past releases of KDE 4 were lacking in comparison to Compiz. After installing KDE 4.6.2 recently I decided to see if there has been any progress, and was pleasantly surprised. Although KWin is still not quite up to the standard of Compiz in all areas,
