Plasma Next Is Preparing to Replace KDE, First Beta Now Available for Download

Filed under
KDE

Plasma Next has been built to eventually replace the current KDE Applications and Platform, which seems to have run its course. The project is still being maintained and new versions will still be released, but the new Plasma project is the future.

To make things more manageable for the developers, the project has been separated in a few smaller ones that in the end will come together in a single, bigger product. This is not only a change of name, but a true evolution of KDE.

It is too flat. They appear to be trying to copy windows 8.

which looks beautiful.

Theme

That new theme looks awful.

Not Flat Enough...

Get with it... Crystal and shiny things are long over. Flat is in, and I don't think the icons are flat enough and don't blend well with the rest of the theme. Personally, they need to look at what's trending in Android for ideas on themes. They need to get the base icon theme right, because its the only one that'll be complete enough to use for most.

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
