KDE "The KDE Community is happy to release the fourth Beta for KDE 4.0. This Beta aimed at further polishing of the KDE codebase and we would love to start receiving feedback from testers. As KDE has largely has been in bugfix mode, this latest Beta aims to encourage testers to have a look at it to help us find and solve the remaining problems and bugs. Besides the stabilization of the codebase, some minor features have been added, including but not limited to much work on Plasma, the KDE 4 desktop shell. Sebastian Kugler notes: 'The improvements have been huge, and plasma is much closer to what it needs to be before the release. I am confident we will be able to finish it and present a very usable plasma to our userbase with KDE 4.0. We will then be able to extend on that and present truly innovative desktop interfaces throughout the KDE 4 lifecycle.'"

I'm sorry. I just had to look up the screenshot in the announcement. Look at it, reread your comment, look at it again.

This can't be serious comment. I mean, back to the 1998? You mean Windows '98? Yeah, sure. Alphablending was a dirty word, back then, as where rounded corners. Big grey-land.

If you would play with Oxygen, the new KDE 4 look, you would quickly discover it is much more colorful as it seems at first sight. Yet very light on the eyes. Personally, I'm really happy with the look. After having been in KDE 4 for a while, I find it unpleasant to come back to KDE 3 - no matter which style I choose - polyester, plastik, domino, baghira, qtcurve - I've gone through all of them since I've been really running KDE 4, and they're not satisfactory compared to Oxygen.
