KDE 4.2 Is The Answer

Jan 28, 2009, 13:04 (12 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Jeremy LaCroix for this link. ]

"The first thing you'll notice is that KDE 4.2 is absolutely beautiful. The default theme, wallpaper, icons, window borders and the new progress bars go together perfectly. Also (as long as your distribution includes all the packages) 4.2 comes with a great collection of some of the best wallpapers I have seen included by default in a software suite. Just about everything in KDE 4.2 looks amazing. Click on the picture below to see a normal sized image of the default desktop.

"When it comes to new features, KDE 4.2 should have been codenamed "Kitchen Sink" because it contains a huge amount of improvements in almost every area you can imagine. Simply put, there are more new features in 4.2 than I've ever seen in a single KDE release at any point in the past (since I've been paying attention, at least) and surely more than I could possibly go over in a single article. Almost every component has seen at least one large improvement and several smaller ones that may or may not be noticeable. For this article, I am going to talk about the features that I discovered during my journey into the new world of KDE."
