datamation.com: Is KDE dying? This question, or variants of it, have been asked with increasing frequency in the two weeks since Jonathan Riddell announced that, after the next release, Canonical would no longer pay him for his work on Kubuntu, the KDE version of Ubuntu.
aseigo.blogspot: I'm going to attempt to answer as many questions about the Spark tablet as possible here. The questions I'll be answering are ones found in comments in my blog, on discussion sites around the Internet and that came in by email or irc. Let the fun begin!
kde.org: KDE is delighted to announce its latest set of releases, providing major updates to KDE Plasma Workspaces, KDE Applications, and the KDE Platform. Version 4.8 provides many new features, and improved stability and performance.
datamation.com: For several years, I've been saying that KDE is no longer trying to catch up with Windows, but surpassed it several years ago. However, last week a reader challenged me to prove it.

datamation.com: No feature defines the KDE 4 release series more than Activities. At the same time, no feature is so little understood. But, when you take the time to learn about Activities, you'll find them a natural extension of the desktop metaphor.
cristalinux.blogspot: KDE SC is great in many, many ways, but I have found that some of those ways are anything but obvious. Users want the quick route to do their thing. In doing so, I overlooked tons of great stuff.
bargincomputing.com: Maximizing the use of screen space on netbook computers is critical, and it really helps when the desktop environment correctly size window to fit the screen. While writing about the KDE, Unity, and Gnome 3 desktops for my Basic Linux course, I made some interesting discoveries.
