linuxinsider.com: KDE is the most powerful of desktop options for Linux users. Its heightened eye candy makes it a big step up from the other desktop choices. The new KDE brings major updates to the Plasma Workspaces, KDE Applications and the KDE Platform itself.
linuxinsider.com: There's been much ado about Linux desktops in recent months, but few would dispute KDE's prominence among them. That, indeed, is one of the many reasons there's been so much concern over Nokia's impending sale of the Qt toolkit, upon which KDE is based.
junauza.com: GNOME and KDE are the top desktop environment choices you come across when you are about to choose a Linux distribution. Choosing between them isn't much of a pain if you are going straight for Ubuntu, but if you’re a bit picky about your desktop, then knowing a bit more about desktop environments becomes a must.
datamation.com: Sometimes, being right is no fun. Three years ago, I suggested that the Linux desktop was headed for a future dominated by KDE, and that GNOME would be at a disadvantage. Looking back, I conclude that I was right, if only approximately.
itworld.com: Even as the prospect of a another new Windows blunder and some new OEM deals have some wondering if this might be the time people start paying attention to the Linux desktop, disruptions within Linux desktop development communities may be threatening the future of the Linux desktop.

linuxlock.blogspot: When I first discovered Linux, I fell in love. It had that "dangerous" look that many of us like. It was KDE3 and Fluxbox that had me at hello.
h-online.com: KDE developer Jonathan Riddell has announced that the Rekonq web browser has now reached version 1.0 and is available to download.
phoronix.com: KDE 4.9 will be released in August and overall it feels more responsive and faster during desktop use than its predecessors.
datamation.com: KDE 4.9 is a mature release, so you wouldn't expect major renovations. However, to judge from the second release candidate (technically, the 4.8.97 release), that expectation is no more than half correct.
jaysonrowe.blogspot: I left KDE back in the early KDE4 days. I had always been a KDE user since first using Linux. The other day I was tinkering around and decided to try KDE on Fedora.
thevarguy.com: With the plethora of open source desktop environments available at the moment, it’s hard to keep track of all the different features sets. And since KDE, which has recently become my interface of choice, arguably enjoys less media love than alternatives such as GNOME and Unity, it seems only fair to highlight some of the feature changes in its next upcoming release.
h-online.com: KDE contributor and OpenSUSE community manager Jos Poortvliet has written a blog posting on the KDE news site, explaining the KDE project's stance on the future of Qt.
