Hands-on: semantic desktop starts to show in KDE SC 4.4

,----[ Quote ]
| Last week, the KDE community officially 
| released KDE Software Compilation 4.4, a 
| significant update of the open source desktop 
| environment and its associated application 
| stack. The new version delivers some user 
| interface improvements, enhanced usability, new 
| features, additional software, and a number of 
| important bug fixes.

| KDE has come a very long way since the initial 
| 4.0 release in 2008. It's a very modern desktop 
| with a lot of rich and impressive features. KDE 
| enthusiasts will find a whole lot to like in 
| 4.4, and users who were put off by the 
| instability and missing functionality of 
| previous releases might want to give it another 
| look.

Mandriva Linux 2010 and its KDE 4.4 Upgrade

,----[ Quote ]
| I've been happily using Mandriva 2010 as my
| desktop system since its release last
| November. The few issues I've had could be
| traced back to KDE 4.3.2. I had run the
| Update Manager a couple times at the
| beginning, but soon became lax and haven't
| updated since. Honestly, I just didn't want
| to risk an upgrade ruining what was
| essentially a completely enjoyable
| experience. But when Juan Luis Baptiste
| posted that KDE 4.4 packages were available
| for Mandriva 2010, it seemed worth risking
| a re-install.

| Cantor (a scientific maths application) and
| many others.
