KDE 4.9: As Pretty and Peppy as a Linux Desktop Can Be

Filed under
KDE

The latest release earlier this month of the K Desktop Environment, or KDE, is a solid upgrade that could very well win back the hearts and fingers of Linux users who wandered off to other, less powerful desktop shells. I am particularly impressed with its smooth integration into the dedicated KDE distribution in Linux Mint 13.

The new KDE brings major updates to the Plasma Workspaces, KDE Applications and the KDE Platform itself. Along with many new features comes much better stability and performance.

For example, earlier versions of KDE on Ubuntu always posed wireless connection troubles on several of my laptops. This version, however, needed no fiddling to make a wireless connection.

Open source software holds many compelling advantages over proprietary software.
