More on netbooks, devices and everything

| KDE SC and Plasma:why?
| We still hear again and again that KDE is to 
| heavy and too bloated to run on any modest 
| hardware. Of course technically the 
| situation can be improved and it will, for 
| instance the platform profiles that are 
| being cooked right now will be able to 
| provide a law fat (as in Kevin words :) you 
| will find information about that in the 
| upcoming future on the planet.
| In the other hand, complaints are often not 
| completely true, we need better 
| communication about what the advantages of a 
| KDE based solution are, and where the 
| problems are: we pushes the edges of what 
| all the layers of our platform can do, Being 
| Qt, X, or graphics drivers, due to our hard 
| beating the quality of the whole stack is 
| really increasing (and this funningly enough 
| is benefiting non KDE users as well).

| I downloaded the .iso of Kubuntu Netbook 
| Alpha 2 and installed it in Sunâs, I mean 
| Oracleâs VirtualBox.  The virtual machine is 
| running with 2 GB of RAM with 2 processors.  
| Included are some screenshots taken from the 
| VM and some comments along with it.

| Looking forward to Maverick and more changes 
| coming down.

The future of notifications

,----[ Quote ]
| KDE SC 4.4 has some improvements to the
| notification system, as I shown there, but
| still some problems remains:
| The popup can still be very big, covering
| a big part of the screen, stealing input
| area or just being too big for smaller
| screens.
