KDE Ars takes a look at KDE 4.0.2. "When KDE 4.0 was officially released in January, there were a lot of gaping holes in basic functionality. During the past few months, the codebase has matured considerably, and the environment is steadily approaching the point where it will be sufficiently robust for widespread day-to-day use. Although there are still many features missing, version 4.0.2 - which was released last week - offers an improved user experience. We tested KDE 4.0.2 with the recently released Kubuntu 8.04 alpha 6." In addition, there is a new 'visual changelog' for KDE 4.1.

two years or more of development on a fresh user environment.... someone forgot to focus on the "USER" and the environment they might have been using by now....

using MAC widgets great wow.. thanks.. erm is that not kind of missing the point....

I have to admit I was excited and looking forward to "KDE 4" at one point in time.......... will take a hell of a lot to move me from KDE 3.5.x or 3.6.x etc etc... now... just on what I have seen of it..... if there is anything approaching usability this year then I will be shocked....

the point of an open desktop environment is that I the user can do what i want with MY desktop and not have some developers dictate what they want me to do with it...............
