Hidden Linux : Learning to love KDE 4 (part II)

,----[ Quote ]
| The main difference between KDE 3 and KDE 4 
| is that the former is fixed and static 
| while the latter is dynamic and 
| interactive. For a trivial example of that 
| go to System Settings / Desktop / All 
| Effects and activate Snow. Now hitting the 
| Meta+Ctrl+F12 keys (or Win+Ctrl+F12) will 
| fill your desktop with falling snowflakes.
| [...]
| In short, Plasma and KDE 4 allow you to 
| build your own interactive desktop. If that 
| seems a little daunting, check out what 
| others have done ...


OpenDesktop Community Choose Winners of Desktop Contest

,----[ Quote ]
| About-information from developer profiles, 
| desktop searches in online forums, an 
| interface library and update notification 
| of web page content bring the concept of a 
| social desktop a step closer to reality.
| [...]
| This helps in presenting Free Software apps 
| as more "human", because it shows (through 
| their profiles) that there's real people 
| working on the program.'' His prize is a 
| Inspiron 10v notebook from Dell with 
| Ubuntu. The extended AboutDialog is already 
| included in Amarok 2.2.


KDE Social Desktop Contest: Freeing the Web

,----[ Quote ]
| With this goal, Karlitschek announced the 
| contest on June 17. Prizes were a netbook 
| from Dell for the winner and a one terabyte 
| hard drive for the runner up, and $50 and 
| $30 Amazon gift certificates for third and 
| fourth place. Judging was done by Seigo and 
| Karlitschek, and -- partly to emphasize 
| that the idea was not confined to KDE -- 
| Luis Villa of the GNOME project and 
| Alexander Colorado of OpenOffice.org.

| I absolutely love KDE 4. There is so much new, but
| everything that is different feels intuit. My very
| favorite feature is, this far, the device notifying
| plasmoid. Not having to show the desktop to mount, open
| or unmount my USB-stick is just - smart and intuit.


Master Dolphin in KDE 4

,----[ Quote ]
| Ultimately Dolphin is a preference, and some will still
| prefer the more powerful Konqueror. Others will
| appreciate have a file manager separate from their
| browser.  There are many other features to try with
| Dolphin. Experiment and try new things. You might be
| pleasantly surprised.

| which very stable and least risky to virus as comapred
| to windows any edition whether it is XP or windows 7.
| My Rating : 4.5/5

| live-helper teams. You can download it via BitTorrent, fetch the Torrent file
| from here!.
