This is my everyday desktop not just a pretty shot. Often I take a brak from coding my web stuff (pgadmin in the background) to play a relaxing game of some arcade classic... This is Slackware 10.0, with KDE 3.3. I usually always keep up with latest kernel so I'm on 18.104.22.168 which works beautifully with all I throw at my system. I have 3 GIGs of RAM and let me tell you - sometimes all of it goes to a good use :-) Under 2.6.x preemtive kernel series I can play xmame and not feel any background work being done - something I couldn't do with 2.4 (I used to shut down a lot of apps).
