Windows Now that Windows 8 has gone gold, Microsoft can move on to other things. With Windows 8, the most important of these is probably to make sure people know how to actually use it. Metro is filled to the brim with hard-to-discover features, but Microsoft has a plan. Will it be enough?

I was editing my comment and cleaning it up made massive changes and OSnews refused to accept the edited version, out of time , oh well ..

You think so therefore it must be ? QT is absolutely fine, in fact version 5 will soon be released, its all GPLed so there is no taking it back regardless of what happens to Nokia. It is in fact in a much better state than it ever has been because it is now completely open.

KDE has always been about flexibility, I posted this a while back but this was my kde desktop:

It took me a whole half an hour to get it looking like that. Currently it looks pretty much like that but I am running kubuntu 12.10 alpha. Its the way I like it, its the way I work most efficiently.

It may not be to your taste as it ships from the developers but they have built in so much flexibility that it takes a short period of time to make it look the way you want, it gives me the option to download more themes directly from the different theme locations, could it be any more simple ?

It is ultimately down to you, its your choice how you want it to look. Any distributor can hire a graphic designer or 12 and make kde look amazing the development team is doing an outstanding job with it.

The planned KDE 5 changes also are smart are exactly the right things to do.
