Kubuntu 8.04 Featuring KDE 4

,----[ Quote ]
| Yes, you heard that right! Kubuntu 8.04, the Hardy Heron, will provide you
| the option of using either KDE 3.5 or KDE 4. Jonathan Riddell just posted the
| news in an email to the Kubuntu Developer’s mailing list...


[Benchmark:] KDE 3.5 vs KDE 4.0 - Round two ?

,----[ Quote ]
| The results obtained with Exmap significantly differ from the results
| obtained from KSysguard. By this I mean the memory used by particular
| processes. The first and the fundamental difference is that not every
| component of KDE 4 requires less memory. Some of them require it more like
| comparing Plasma to KDesktop or KWin.



KDE 4 Preview

| KDE 4 looks very promising. It looks good, works good and I predict reception
| will be good.


Introducing KDE 4

| As most of you already know, it's the new KDE 4 default file manager. The KDE
| 3.x version introduce a new way for file management on KDE, You're probably
| asking yourself: New? In which way? Let me answer that, it introduced for the
| first time in KDE world a simple KDE file manager, easy to follow and use,
| because I believe users will agree that Konqueror (and don't even make me
| talk about Krusader) isn't the user friendliness application out there.



Switching from KDE to WinXP #2

| Conclusion
| I have looked at several features that KDE?s Konqueror has but that
| WinXP's Explorer doesn't have. I have also mentioned a few of the
| things I don't like about Explorer and often why I think Konqueror's way of
| doing it is better. You may have noticed that there is nothing positive
| about Explorer. That is true and it is not for lack of trying. The fact is,
| for me, the way I work, there is just nothing special about Explorer. I
| didn't find any feature that struck me as being especially cool or useful
| that Konqueror didn?t also have.
| Switching from KDE to WindowsXP at work has seriously impaired my
| productivity.


KDE4 is very attractive for software service companies

| The next version of KDE4 will run natively on Mac OS X and Windows XP and
| Vista. This means that it is a very attractive platform for software
| development. No other cross-platform toolkit looks as good as Qt and has an ¬*
| equally appealing API. ¬*
