"It's time to head off to that wonderful land of KDE where the desktop only gets better and better with each release. In fact, a new release should be out now – KDE 4.5 with 1,723 new features and 16.022 bug fixes. I don't believe the packages have hit the repositories just yet, but they will soon. And when they do, you should make sure you download and install very quickly.

"In the meantime, let's take a look a some Plasmoids that are sure to make your desktop a bit better. If you're not familiar with Plasmoids, they are small little applications, widgets if you will, that live on your desktop. Plasmoids range from the simple "Hello World!" to some very complex tools. Some of the Plasmoids you will see listed might seem, well, worthless while others are very handy. In this article we'll avoid the worthless and introduce you to a couple of these really handy Plasmoids."
