Fedora 14 KDE

Filed under

In my last look at Fedora 14, I covered the GNOME version. Fedora comes in other flavors though, including a KDE version. Since there are many KDE users out there, I thought it wise to cover the KDE release.

KDE has been updated to version 4.5 in this release. See the KDE 4.5 release announcement. If you aren’t familiar with what it has to offer desktop users.

Notification area cleanup
KWin upgrade
Plasma Activity Manager
Better Workspace controls

* Mobility options –
