KDE4 Devel Live-CD Review: Work in Progress

,----[ Quote ]
| The LiveCD edition of KDE4 clearly shows that a significant amount
| of work has been dedicated to the project already. There is however
| a lot to be finished before the new version of KDE will shine. I
| think that the stability and quality of the SVN version is not a
| big deal -- all development code is unstable and lacks features.
| KDE4 promises to be a modern and functional environment with a
| huge collection of remarkable apps, well integrated with each
| other, starting with a the office suite, though file management,
| multimedia and even programmer tools. Great achievements,
| however, require time.
