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.

I don't know why anybody tries to make anything better. I was just fine reading by candle light, packing water miles from the creek and feeding the mule to pull my cart.


Haha, yeah very good point. This reminds me of a nice German quote, I try to translate it properly:

"Where would it lead us, if everybody said "where would it lead us", but nobody actually went to look where it would lead us, if we just went?"
