KDE KDE 4.1, which is supposed to become the KDE4 version usable by 'normal' people, is coming at the end of July. When Ars reviewed the beta release, they were positive in that it was moving forward at an "extraordinary pace". Despite the positive notions in the news, many seem to have problems actually seeing all the new stuff being done in KDE4 - just like how people fail to see the massive amount of work put into Vista. KDE developer Rafael Fernandez Lopez (I'm sorry for the lack of diacritical marks, an OSNews bug we're working on) decided to put together a screencast showing off all the new stuff coming in KDE 4.1.

Using the live CD's here http://home.kde.org/~binner/kde-four-live/ I have no problem at all crashing KDE4 within about 20 minutes of use, by only clicking around the desktop and loading programs. Plasma itself is extremely unstable.

Probably need to wait until KDE 4.3+ before it could seriously be used.


From home.kde.org? At least no one can claim that it is just a problem with some distro's packages. :-)

I'm not sure where you're looking. All I see is a reference to KDE 4.0 on that page, which makes sense being that it's the released version and all.

Nice try.

The liveCD's that Steve Binner provides are autogenerated by the openSUSE build infrastructure. The 4.1 CD's are a convenience for the community based on regular snapshots, not some sort of endorsement by KDE that it is ready for prime time.

But go on, if it makes you feel better.
