KDE 4.2 "The Answer" - My Experiences So Far

Jan 12, 2009, 17:05 (2 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Jeremy LaCroix for this link. ]

"The KDE 4 series debuted last year, this same month. KDE 4.0 was released to major skepticism, as it was often referred to as the desktop that would change Linux forever, and ended up not being feature complete. I found KDE 4.0 to be a solid release (yet missing a bunch of features) yet it's implementation in Kubuntu was absolutely horrible.

"If I remember correctly, Hardy Heron was the current U/Kubuntu release, which shipped KDE 3.5 out of the box. KDE 4.0 was available as an optional install, and due to that, Canonical dropped the LTS status of Kubuntu due to the experimental nature of the new KDE and the work that needed to be done in order to make it work nicely with the rest of the components in the Operating System. Why was the implementation so horrible in Heron?" Complete Story
