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.

I tried the latest Suse beta Live CD yesterday and KDE with Firefox, OOo and Kmail opened (no Thunderbird on the liveCD) just so eats up 220 MB RAM.

So a current setup can run on 256 MB systems for plain office work without swaping.
