Plasma: Where we are going

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the great things about our semi-annual Tokamak 
| developer sprints is that it's a great way for us to 
| refocus our energies on the future. By doing so, we make 
| sure that the path that our feet are on today is a good 
| one. At Tokamak 3, several goals and vision clarifications 
| emerged and I'd like to share them with all of you.



7 Things You Didnât Know You can Do With KRunner

,----[ Quote ]
| KRunner is one of those KDE applications that people
| generally take for granted. Since it has the same
| shortcut key, Alt+F2, as Gnomeâs Run Application
| terminal, those who have just started using KDE
| generally assume that it is just another version of
| Gnomeâs Run Application terminal. However, it cannot be
| farther from the truth. In reality KRunner is one of
| KDE 4.3âs most useful application.


KDE's Project Silk

,----[ Quote ]
| Yet, the web experience we deliver in KDE leaves many
| issues, or rather missed  opportunities. We have built
| a wonderful desktop, window effects that support
| running  many applications at the same time in a -- for
| the user -- manageable way. We have  created a lot of
| new possibilities for an ergonomic and beautiful
| desktop, and strong  applications on top of that. Many
| developers want to develop KDE applications for non-
| desktop machine, such as smaller, mobile devices and
| media centers.
