linuxcrunch.com: Less than 13 days and Kubnutu 9.10 will be released. It is based on Ubuntu 9.10 packages which means it will get: Linux kernel 2.6.31, ext4 filesystem by default,GRUB 2 boot loader and a lot more. In this post I will try to list five things that make Kubuntu 9.10 special in compare to other KDE distribution.
- KDE4 overtaking GNOME in terms of usability?
- GNOME slip ups; a KDE perspective
- A Dozen GNOME Themes
thinkdigit.com: Dolphin the KDE4's default file manager. You can think of it as an equivalent to Windows Explorer on a KDE based Linux. Much like Explorer it allows you to browse the contents of your computer, and manage files and folders.
aseigo.blogspot: Cornelius posted a neat summary of the source code heft in KDE's main modules. Michael Meeks posted an blog entry showing other projects' line count next to KDE's while asking "the real question is not 'is KDE valuable' - of course it is; but how does it compare[?]"
earthweb.com: Imagine being able to search for help online without leaving your desktop application. An About dialog you could use to contact the developer. A site where you could post works in progress directly from your desktop for criticism. These are a few of the entries in KDE's recent social desktop contest.
blogs.pcworld.co.nz: The main difference between KDE 3 and KDE 4 is that the former is fixed and static while the latter is dynamic and interactive. For a trivial example of that go to System Settings / Desktop / All Effects and activate Snow. Now hitting the Meta+Ctrl+F12 keys (or Win+Ctrl+F12) will fill your desktop with falling snowflakes.
maketecheasier.com: In my last post, I covered some of the features in Dolphin that I find particularly useful. In this post, you will learn about some very basic features that everyone uses, but you may not know all of the various easy methods of accomplishing them.
blog.cornelius-schumacher.de: 4,273,291 lines of code, that's the size of the KDE core modules, which are released as the official KDE software distribution, as of today.
celettu.wordpress: I’ve blogged about KDE 4 before, gradually noticing the improvement, but ultimately always running back to Openbox for various reasons.
blog.martin-graesslin.com: I broke a promise, the promise to never ever implement the most useless Compiz effect in KWin: cube gears.
