[News] KDE Renaissance and a Look Ahead at Kubuntu 9.04

Hash: SHA1

Revival of an Oldie but Goodie: Kiosk's Possible Return?

,----[ Quote ]
| It wasn't that the KDE Kiosk tool didn't exist at the time. I simply missed 
| it. Yes, I was a bad systems librarian for missing it, and then spending days 
| (happily, but still...) locking down the desktop and reinventing the wheel.  
| With the release of KDE 4, Kiosk sadly fell into a state of limbo. Now, 
| however, KDE developer Ian Geiser wants to bring it back to life on KDE 4. 


My Experiences With Ubuntu 9.04 So Far

,----[ Quote ]
| Kubuntu 9.04 is due out in April, and as always, I couldn’t help but to start 
| testing it early and get a good look at what we will be expecting come 
| release day. I’ve been using Jaunty for a little over a month now, and I 
| thought I’d share some of my experiences. In summary, if things keep going 
| the way they are now, Jaunty will be the one to watch out for this year.    



KDE 4.2 brings the MySQL server to the desktop

,----[ Quote ]
| If you’re using Fedora 10, and are a KDE desktop user, you’ll notice that
| your latest KDE 4.2 update, requires having a local MySQL server installed.
| This is due to Akonadi, part of the KDE PIM packages, that now rely on MySQL
| as a default server, for storing PIM data. Just a few months ago, I mentioned
| the news that Amarok 2 will also use MySQL as a default database.


KDE 4.1 delivers a next-gen desktop Linux experience

,----[ Quote ]
| Although the weaknesses of the flawed 4.0 release provoked widespread
| criticism from users, version 4.1 is so polished that it feels like a
| completely different piece of software. This version truly delivers on KDE's
| promise of a next-generation Linux desktop environment, and it completes the
| foundation for a strong 4.x series.


My Perfect Desktop: Kubuntu KDE 4

,----[ Quote ]
| The Kubuntu KDE 4 desktop has become my perfect desktop. It has all the
| functionality I could ask for, and I have added applications to supplement
| that effect.


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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
