Exploring the KDE Plasma Netbook interface
The latest K Desktop Environment, KDE, features two modes of interacting with the desktop – the classic Desktop interface and the Netbook interface. On recent KDE-based distributions that I have reviewed for this website, the default is the classic Desktop, but switching to the Netbook interface is an easy, few seconds process. I posted a few screenshots of the Netbook interface in a review of Kubuntu 10.10. In this article, I will present a detailed look at the features of this new interface type.
To switch to the Netbook interface, launch System Settings and click on the Workspace icon (under Workspace Appearance and Behavior). The default Netbook interface is shown below.
