    Review : KDE 4.1 - Next Gen Linux Desktop

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Conclusion : KDE 4.1 is a visual delight ,Plasma desktop is one of the
    | coolest looking desktop shell you will find across Operating Systems, it is
    | definitely Linux Desktop of the future and with the included frameworks like
    | Phonon , Solid etc KDE 4.1 makes the task of developing applications for KDE
    | relatively easy for developers.
    |
    | Impressed , A number of linux distributions like Kubuntu 8.10 and Mandriva
    | Linux 2009.0 comes preinstalled with KDE 4.1, also it is relatively easy to
    | install KDE 4.1 on Ubuntu , Fedora or anyother major distribution.

    30 Cool Linux Login Screens

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | One of the most powerful attributes that are running for Linux as opposed to
    | other OS’es is it flexibility and customizibility. Its one of the first
    | things mentioned when a Linux geek is asked about Linux. And we love to show
    | it. I trekked Gnome Look and KDE Look and chose for you these 30 great login
    | screen themes. The first 15 are GNOME Specific, while 16-30 are for KDE.

    Pretty!


    Recent:

    Hooray, it's a 4.1.1!

    | After last week's update to the KDE 3.5 series, today's KDE release updates
    | the stable KDE 4.1 branch to KDE 4.1.1. It bears the codename "Cebidae"
    | referring to an in-joke often made during Akademy 2008. With only a good
    | month of development time -- and Akademy in between -- the changelog is still
    | impressively long. Pretty much all applications have received the developers'
    | attention, resulting in a long list of bugfixes and improvements.

    Shuttleworth has some nice words for KDE

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Is Mr Ubuntu, Mark Shuttleworth, slowly warming towards KDE? Or is the man
    | merely trying to keep the KDE folk onside, after a whole host of "technical
    | writers" have attacked the new release of that desktop environment?
    |
    | [...]
    |
    | Given the amount of flak that the recent KDE release - 4.0 - has taken from
    | the pro-GNOME pundits at sites like linux.com, you would think that the worst
    | possible thing any supporter of GNOME - as Shuttleworth is perceived to be -
    | could do is to speak out in support of anything associated with KDE.
    |
    | But you would be wrong. Shuttleworth is now floating the idea that there can
    | be a QT-based GNOME.

    Screencast: Showing Off KDE 4.1

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | KDE 4.1, which is supposed to become the KDE4 version usable by 'normal'
    | people, is coming at the end of July. When Ars reviewed the beta release,
    | they were positive in that it was moving forward at an "extraordinary pace".
    | Despite the positive notions in the news, many seem to have problems actually
    | seeing all the new stuff being done in KDE4 - just like how people fail to
    | see the massive amount of work put into Vista. KDE developer Rafael Fernandez
    | Lopez (I'm sorry for the lack of diacritical marks, an OSNews bug we're
    | working on) decided to put together a screencast showing off all the new
    | stuff coming in KDE 4.1.

    I have KDE 4.1 installed on my Ubuntu laptop, and it's definitely more
    stable and usable than KDE 4.0. However, I still have a few problems
    with it. It's slow and sluggish, and the pager still doesn't work
    properly with compiz effects like the desktop cube.

    I'm still sticking with Gnome.
