I tried 4.5.1 on 8.1/i386 with every port updated, on a 4-core AMD CPU 
with a Radeon HD 4200:
_ base components continuosly crash;
_ there were severe rendering problems (i.e. black areas sometimes 
instead of icons, windows not updating when moved, ecc...);
_ I possibly had driver problems, with some accelerations not working 
(could not enable it in the system settings);
_ and everything was not just slow, but *SLOW*;
_ it messed so much with my hardware, that I could not switch back to 
KDE3 without a reboot (simply restarting the X server was not enough).

I do not hold by breath for burning windows, rotating desktops or other 
fancy effects, but the system was plainly unusable.

So, I appreciate the nice work, but I'll wait for some new version.
If some developer needs some info or wants me to do some test, I still 
have everything installed, so I'll gladly help.
