phoronix.com: The 2011 Desktop Summit is coming to a close at Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany. This was the second time that GNOME and KDE developers joined to host a Linux desktop summit of around 1,000 participants.
pcworld.com: Between Unity and GNOME 3, there seems to be no end to the controversy surrounding Linux desktop environments this year.
techlaze.com: Since the initial KDE 4 release, a lot of quality community-created widgets and plugins have sprung up, making the KDE workspace more than just an alternative to GNOME 3 or Unity.
ostatic.com: Linux users seem to be interested in what our de facto leader uses on his desktop. In 2005 KDE users reveled when Linus said, "just ... use KDE." Later on in 2009 GNOME users returned the nose rubbing when he said, "I switched to GNOME." Well, both groups can now sulk together.
Also: Torvalds would like to see a GNOME fork
ostatic.com: Dolphin, that underappreciated file manager shipped with KDE, has had a hard time. Many users will never be happy with it. But those who use Dolphin might be happy with some of the newest changes coming in KDE 4.8.
linuxtweaking.blogspot: Some old time Fedora users may be aware of Fedora's poor track record when it comes to KDE although things have been changing ever since the release of KDE 4.x.
dot.kde.org: KDE is delighted to announce its latest releases—Version 4.7—providing major updates to the KDE Plasma Workspaces, KDE Applications, and the KDE Platform.
datamation.com: Customization has always had a high priority on the Linux desktop. That hasn't changed now that the two major desktops have become three -- GNOME, KDE and Ubuntu's Unity. If anything, as much as two-thirds of the complaints are about this trio.
kate-editor.org: For me, it (still) feels very unnatural to talk about us as KDE. I’m still thinking in terms of the KDE community; and the KDE Project releases the KDE Desktop (or just KDE).
neverendingo.blogspot: Some readers might remember, some time back we talked about setting up stats for most of our KDE Websites. Yes, we did. And i thought it is time to share something of that with you.
