For a while I was running the ATI fglrx driver on my desktop box. It was almost unusable with KDE4 so I switched to Fluxbox, but even then it was painfully slow. Eventually I gave up with ATI and installed the open-source Radeon driver. After a purge of the ATI components and a reboot Fluxbox was much more responsive. In fact it is now sufficiently fast enough to run KDE4 properly.
It was faster running Squeeze but at the moment in Wheezy it is at least fast enough to use again.
