KDE Ars takes a look at KDE 4.0 Beta 2, and concludes: "This beta may not be the end result yet, but there has definitely been a lot of progress since the last one. For the first time I have been able to stop writing about individual features within KDE 4 and start to talk about the level of integration, and general feel of the system to get an impression of how KDE 4.0 will feel like to use."

Ouch, sorry to piss your feet ;)

It's actually the same thing, vapor isn't nothing you see, but water in the gas form. So, right now plasma exists, but is still a lot of gas ;)

And yes, I do belive it have future and it will be great, but it needs more time... much more than KDE 4.0.X cycle.

I remember your speech in FISL (Porto Alegre) last year very well, and THAT was about changing the whole KDE interface, Plasma (t.o.d.a.y) isn't ;)

>and now you're posting from the future? ;)
I was refering the decision that was taken much earlier than Plasma had made the first Plasmoid, sorry if my english is as good as yours ;)

with the KDE interface, he was talking about the desktop... Of course, other things in the interface might change considerably after 4.0 as well, but plasma aims to define a lot of how you interact with your pc (unlike the current desktop).

We're not there yet, sure. But the foundations are mostly there now, and with all the other technologies like solid and akonadi, I think we CAN do more visible and bigger changes to the interface.

It's just that the nature of FOSS development makes it hard to see big changes because you get em fed them in pieces ;)
