KDE KDE 4.1, which is supposed to become the KDE4 version usable by 'normal' people, is coming at the end of July. When Ars reviewed the beta release, they were positive in that it was moving forward at an "extraordinary pace". Despite the positive notions in the news, many seem to have problems actually seeing all the new stuff being done in KDE4 - just like how people fail to see the massive amount of work put into Vista. KDE developer Rafael Fernandez Lopez (I'm sorry for the lack of diacritical marks, an OSNews bug we're working on) decided to put together a screencast showing off all the new stuff coming in KDE 4.1.

Personally I've never had much luck with live cds of kde4.0.x and 4.x .

However whenever I have built from svn it has been more stable (except when big changes went in like WOC).

Those packages are built quickly and shoved onto a live cd so you can't expect production quality not to mention the fact that it is STILL BETA people getting crashes is not exactly unexpected.

You should expect crashes...those that don't have them are the lucky ones.

there are still 2 months to go. Feature freeze is in effect...it's bug fixing for the next 2 months before release.

If you feel that it isn't ready for you until 4.3...so be it...just be aware that for many of us it is perfectly usable at 4.1 (or will be)
