[News] A Look at KDE4 Applications and Plasma

Hash: SHA1

KDE4 apps: Dolphin

,----[ Quote ]
| Dolphin is the default file manager for KDE4. It is very powerful, offering 
| many functionalities. The developers have focused on the functionality of 
| Dolphin - being a file manager. As a long-time user, I can say it is a very 
| proud substitute for its older brother, Konqueror (the default file manager 
| for KDE3).    


Plasma: I'm back

,----[ Quote ]
| Plasma is, among other things, the new way of building your desktop, it works 
| using Plasmoids, those Plasmoids are similar to Gadgets or Widgets. Plasmoids 
| are contained by... well... containments, this relantionship it's the secret 
| of its flexibility. The Desktop (image background) is a containment, you can 
| put as many plasmoids as you want, those can create a normal interface 
| showing your /desktop files, or you can put clocks, stocks viewers, media 
| controls, pictures, etc. However, the panel is a cointenment too, you can 
| place your Plasmoids in your desktop or in the panel, Plasmoids will change 
| their layout to match correctly their new containment.        


KDE4 looks yummy in these screenshots. Better than Mac OS X. :-)

KDE4 - Making computers fun again.

,----[ Quote ]
| The cool part was last night when one of them (who is not very technically
| minded at all) turned to me and said, "Dad, guess what? I figured out
| widgets. They are SO cool!". It's the first time I recall her excited about
| something she could do on the computer. Dad thinks that is "SO cool".
| Kubuntu Intrepid - Teenager Ready


Mom-compatible Kubuntu Intrepid with KDE4

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall a nice demonstration of how Mom-compatible both Kubuntu and KDE4
| already are, enabling a computer newbie to use her computer without
| those "horrible beeps" and restarts she experienced before. She doesn't miss
| Windows at all and say that it's far more beautiful and not more difficult
| now than before :-)

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
