2010 Poll

The poll title simply says '2010'. What exactly would I be voting on? It's ambiguous, at least to me.

re: 2010 poll

the year in general. 2009 sucked in a lot of areas, especially the economy. Do you think 2010 will be better, worse, or about the same as than 2009?

China, Singapore, Taiwan

Based on these results, Tux Machines readers are optimists.

2010 will be a good year... for China, Singapore, Taiwan...

    KDE developer Kai Uwe has just published a lengthy article where he talks about developing a Windows 8-inspired theme for the upcoming KDE Plasma 5.5 desktop environment.
  • KDE Developer Working On Windows 8 Inspired Look
    Kai Uwe has been working on some experimental hacks to resemble Windows 8, although Microsoft's default interface has changed with Windows 10. He's calling this work "U-Bahn" (the German equivalent of a Metro subsystem system) in reference to Microsoft at the time calling it Metro. This was just some brief hacking and he's not planning to see this U-Bahn project through to the end.
  • Pursuing Awesomeness
    While applets can be installed through “Get Hot New Stuff” and distribution repositories, there’s also the classic .plasmoid file. A feature suggested by one of my colleagues – fresh KDE Plasma user – was to drag .plasmoid files onto the desktop or panel and have them installed. After Marco Martin implemented the neccessary KPackage plumbing this is now possible.
