"KDE4 has a lot of hype. It is a significant change, reportedly
a big jump forward. There is a lot of new technology and names:
Plasma, Oxygen, Phonon, Okular, Solid and more . Depending on what
you read, and where you read it, it is either the second coming of
the DE Christ, or the first coming of the DE Anti-christ. I decided
to live with KDE 4 RC2+ on OpenSuse for an entire month, Dec
11--Jan 11th (the release date) and record my experiences. I'll be
publishing an article a day about KDE 4 through the release.
"The desktop computer I had recently reviewed from Geeks.com
(the Pentium 4 Geek kit) served as my test system. It has been
solid. The OS is openSUSE 10.3, installed via 1Click. I'm updating
RC2 daily. The hardware is reasonably modern, a Pentium 4 based
system. I upped the RAM to 3 gigs from 1 gig. I was ready to go.
Knowing how you haters are, I figured the best way to start this
series is with link bait.
