KDE "Mobile devices that adapt to who you are, reflecting what you are doing when you are doing it. This concept is at the heart of the Plasma Active user experience. Plasma Active One was released in October 2011, providing early adopters the first opportunity to experience Activities on a tablet. Since then, the design and development team behind this open source touch interface has been hard at work on an update. The fruits of their labor were released today, December 14, 2011 as Plasma Active Two."

The vast majority of people are not even remotely that organized that they will create activities for different projects and connect their files and web pages and relevant apps together.

Don´t worry about them ... they won´t even know activities are there to get the best out of their tablet using experience.. they will still live their happy lives toying aroung with their single activity tablets...

Now, as for the rest of us, those who know about activities, how they work, why are they there, how to make good use of them and squeeze our desktops dry to their´s last drop ... well: we do care, a lot!

Start worring about activities the they someone points a gun to your head and forces you to use them ... or the day someone leaves you with no choice but to deal with them ( should that day ever come ) ...

But, please, for the time being just let it flow ... there´s a whole lot of people that does understand activities and the paradign behind them, use them on a daily basis and have greatly improved their whole desktop experience ;)

Best Regards.
