An Early Look At KDE 4.1

,----[ Quote ]
| The first alpha release of KDE 4.1 isn't planned until the end of April, but
| this past weekend the OpenSuSE team had updated their KDE Four Live spin
| against the latest KDE 4.0.66 snapshot packages. The KDE 4.0.66 development
| packages contain new Kickoff and Plasma features along with much other work
| to the numerous packages that will ultimately make up this first major update
| to KDE 4.

Using Full KDE: Almost There

,----[ Quote ]
| KDE by far offers the best integrated experience. Just about all applications
| integrate into each other, which in many ways is good, although, there are
| problems.

Switching from KDE to WinXP #2

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.

Kubuntu KDE4: Rock On!

,----[ Quote ]
| For one, using the modified Kubuntu version of KDE4 is really nice. The
| Kubuntu developers have added applications that make the KDE4 experience
| complete, without having places where functionality is skipped, such as
| package management. There is also improved functionality with the panel at
| the bottom of the screen. Applications can now be added to the panel, and the
| panel can be moved around, resized, and configured. Also, when clicking on
| the clock in the panel, a calendar shows up. Very handy! * * *
|
| [...]
|
| There are so many features included that I am still discovering them. KDE 4 +
| Kubuntu is certainly a perfect match! I will certainly write more about this
| system as I learn more and get a better knowledge of it’s features. *

ReviewLinux.Com: First Look Linux Mint 4.0 KDE

,----[ Quote ]
| Thought I would take a quick look at the latest release of Linux Mint. Linux
| Mint 4.0 KDE is just under 1.0 gig and now has to be placed on a DVD. The
| install process was easy and smooth. The LiveDVD works fine also but I
| decided to install it to my hard drive and take a few screenshots for your
| enjoyment.
