Hash: SHA1

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.    




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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
