phoronix.com: Ahead of the Berlin Desktop Summit, several GNOME and KDE developers have begun a mailing list battle...over a name.
makeuseof.com: It hasn’t been too long ago (since the beginning of this month, in fact) that I switched from using a GNOME desktop to a KDE desktop for my Linux system. This article is all about the features that are meant to boost your productivity and how to use them.
datamation.com: The problems in the 4.7 release reveal that KDE is making little movement toward solutions.
landorsplace.wordpress: I was just looking at another distribution. My mind was telling me that it remembered that the last time I looked at a distribution using the KDE 3.5X series I thought it looked antiquated at best. I’s time to give up on a lot of the interfaces.
blog.martin-graesslin: Jos blog post today reminded me that I had a look at the Harmony Agreements and tried to decide for me whether I would consider to sign such a CA. To make it short:
datamation.com: The perfect desktop would be the one you design yourself. Failing that, which of the main Linux desktops is right for you?
dwasifar.com: I’ve been writing about Mint a lot recently, and if you’ve been reading those, you know already what I think of Mint, which is quite positive. I’m just going to touch on those areas where the KDE edition differs significantly from the Gnome version.
ostatic.com: Back in March we looked at KDE's new Plasma project for portable devices. At the time it offered some interesting effects and a new work flow philosophy. But as far as new interfaces might go, it wasn't totally alien. However, as developers sometimes do, they want to take it even further.
ostatic.com: Yes, I know it's a point-0 release and I know that just very recently developers were admitting there were still issues. But I saw several posts saying how well the latest packages were working and how fast Kmail 2 was, so I foolishly let Sabayon upgrade to KDEPIM 4.6.0. What a nightmare.
lydgate.org: KDE prides itself as being a community. Is that justified? I have seen good, hard-working people driven away from projects because they were receiving behaviour from other members of our community that they would not accept from general users.
lizards.opensuse.org: So in my head there’s a little Walter Sobchak beating on my conscience and shouting “This is what you get when you trust Facebook with your data, Will”.
kde.org: KDE has released a first release candidate of the upcoming 4.7 release of the Plasma Desktop and Netbook workspaces, the KDE Applications and the KDE Frameworks, which is planned for July 27, 2011.
dot.kde.org: Claire Rowland, user experience guru, will be a featured keynote speaker at this summer's Desktop Summit 2011 in Berlin. William Carlson talked with Claire to find out more about her and her work.
