Foresight Linux KDE Edition: The start of the odyssey!

Filed under
Linux

I decided to give KDE a chance on my home system. The first step was to download the brand spanking alpha ISO for Foresight Linux KDE Edition and bring it home.

I waited until everyone was asleep to backup my files and got ready for the long install… AND BOY WAS I DISAPPOINTED! The install, including formatting my 200GB hard drive took 4 MINUTES!

Once I rebooted the machine I was faced with a pretty vanilla KDE installation, with pretty much most of the applications out there already installed for me. Since the last time I played with KDE was several years ago, I took my time learning the applications and tweaking my desktop look and feel to my heart’s content. The first thing that captured my fancy was Amarok! WOW! I loaded my 22 GB of music in there and let it sort it all out, including getting covers for the albums, and moved on to Akregator. Having been a Liferea user for quite some time, I felt right at ease with it and was able to import my old feeds and start reading my news in no time.
