,----[ Quote ]
| In the Linux world with Ubuntu dominating 
| the market to discuss about the comparison 
| of Desktop Managers available for Linux is 
| of good importance . By default Ubuntu 
| comes with gnome desktop environment and 
| Kubuntu comes with kde as the desktop 
| manager . Considering the case of someone 
| who is interested in trying out something 
| different xfce might be fun .


The Linux Desktop Evolves With KDE 4.4

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the biggest items to impact KDE 4.4 
| was Nokia's release of Qt 4.6 in December 
| 2009. The Qt open source GUI framework is 
| the core user interface framework used by 
| KDE. Qt 4.6 brought KDE 4.4 a number of 
| significant advancements, including 
| noticeable performance improvements and a 
| new animation framework, Seigo noted. 


Krusader Conquers Linux Files

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux offers users numerous separate apps 
| to manage files and handle system-related 
| computing chores, but Krusader packages 
| these functions in its own tool sets. 
| Krusader is designed for the KDE desktop, 
| but this file manager does not need the 
| KDE window manager to run on your 
| computer.



Goodbye KDE, Hello XFCE

,----[ Quote ]
| About a year before the release of  Vista I
| became so disgusted with Windows that I made
| the decision to switch completely to Linux and
| have never regretted the decision.  My wife
| and son had no problem making the transition
| from Windows to Linux thanks in no small part
| to KDE.  With KDE 3.5, I was in Desktop
| heaven.  I had power and flexibility that
| Windows users cannot even imagine.


One XFCE 2010 Live edition is out

,----[ Quote ]
| Please remember, this edition is not a Mandriva
| product (so do not expect any kind of support
| directly from Mandriva), but has been completed
| with a great cooperation between the company
| and the community.
| On the 19th November 2009, the mandriva
| community has released the One XFCE 2010 Live
| edition to the world. We tried to ensure the
| XFCE experience is even better than before, do
| not hesitate to contact us if you think more
| polish is needed.
