GNOME 3: The Future of the Linux Desktop Revealed

,----[ Quote ]
| In a session at the FUDcon Fedora Linux user 
| and developer conference this week, 
| contributors showed off some preliminary work 
| for GNOME 3, the next major evolution of the 
| GNOME platform.


Who is KDE? (continued) 

,----[ Quote ]
| For now I'm gonna stop this as there is 
| plenty more but I guess ya'll get the drift - 
| plenty of cool KDE related blogs and people 
| who care about what we do. I consider them 
| part of our community. Not hardcore 
| developers for sure, but part of KDE.



KDE Plasma Netbook Preview

,----[ Quote ]
| With the growing popularity of netbooks, it is
| no surprise that many Linux distributions and
| software developers have created customized
| versions of their software to run on them. Some
| of the popular choices include Ubuntuâs Netbook
| Remix and Intelâs Moblin.  Not to be counted
| out, KDE now has a version of their desktop
| environment designed for netbooks. While it is
| still under heavy development, I thought now
| would be a good time to get a little preview of
| what is to come. For the purposes of this
| preview, I installed Kubuntu Netbook Edition,
| but you can conceivably use any distribution
| that will support your netbook.


Hands-on: Plasma, KWin improve in KDE SC 4.4 beta 1

,----[ Quote ]
| There are a number of more sophisticated
| KWin changes that are under active
| development but probably won't arrive in
| KDE SC 4.4. I'm particularly enthusiastic
| about a project that was undertaken by
| developer Nikhil Marathe which will
| ultimately add dynamic window tiling, so
| that KWin can be used like Ion and other
| keyboard-oriented tiling window managers.
| It's still at an early stage of
| development, but it shows considerable
| promise.
| Several new applications will debut in 4.4,
| including a new blogging tool called
| Blogilo. The tool, formerly known as Bilbo,
| is designed to give users a way to manage
| and post content to blogs that use the
| Metaweblog API, including Wordpress,
| MovableType, and Blogger. Its built-in
| content editor has optional WYSIWYG support
| and spellchecking. Due to its broad
| assortment of capabilities, Blogilo is
| arguably the most feature-rich native
| blogging tool on the Linux platform. It's a
| particularly useful tool for users who
| write multiple blogs and want to manage
| them through a single interface.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
