Description rockonthemoonfm 2011-12-28 12:20:17 UTC
Version:           4.2.0 (using Devel) 
OS:                Linux

Tweaking graphical effects now takes you into an esoteric deal with technology:
Low/high "display resolution" and low/high/very high "cpu".

This option is just for geeks, not understandable to users at all. 
And, which is the soil between low/high/very high in graphics and in computation?
More, (I'm using a weak n270 atom netbook) setting it to from top to bottom level (6 levels!) changes nothing in system responsiveness: 
in few words, this option as it is makes no sense, doesn't serve well.

I suggest to make it more human and more effective: 
using a check box to activate/deactivate Graphical Effects.

This should replace the option hidden in "Style">"Oxygen">"Configure" 
"window decorations">"oxygen">"configure decoration":it should take control of animations state as a whole.

Thanks, have a good 4.8 release party :)

Reproducible: Always

Expected Results:  
KDE 4.9 options are less fragmented, much more accessible and effective, users are happier. \O/
