KDE Here is an interesting discussion of the changes KDE 4.x (via Mandriva Linux 2009 pre-releases) brings to desktop interaction. The article argues that KDE 4 might very well be the next big thing in computing, as it finally tries to steer away from the Xerox desktop metaphor we've all been using since the glory days of disco. While I personally don't really believe KDE 4.x to be revolutionary (I see it more as evolution with pepper in its butt), the article details many of the new things in KDE 4.x, and might make the lives of those first confronted with the new desktop just that little bit easier.

What a painful article...

It's obviously written by a fanboy who is way too excited about KDE4, claiming every minor change to the traditional desktop to be a computing revolution.

I'll admit that KDE4 looks neat and looks like it might have some handy tricks up it's sleeve, but I'm fairly certain it's not going to go down in history as a revolutionary leap forward with how folks use their computers.
