KDE We're really in a KDE/GNOME mood today, it would seem. The KDE team has released the second maintenance release for the KDE 4.2 series, KDE 4.2.2. The three biggest improvements in this release are stability fixes in KRunner, performance enhancements in KMail, and bugfixes, performance improvements and optimization in KHTML. As always, this release will find it way to your distributor of choice soon enough, but if you're impatient, you can always build it yourself.

What gets to me about KDE4 is how incredibly *slow* it is. My laptop has 1.5 GB of RAM, and Slackware with KDE4 (with all desktop effects turned off!) absolutely crawls. CPU usage especially seems heavy, with CPU spikes causing my mouse cursor to freeze when applications launch.

(Not just a Slackware problem either, it happens on all the distros I've tried that use KDE4.)
