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.

btw... before you mod me down further for thinking me a troll...

why not parry my statements? you know that whole 'debate' thing that people hear so much of but rarely actually do?

Actually, the way things work, you can only either mod down/up, or discuss. Not both. So if you get modded, it won't be from anyone that actually wants to discuss your post, because they won't be able to anyways.

I wouldn't mod you down for thinking you a troll, but I wouldn't "parry" your statements either since you really have nothing of substance to discuss.

As far as I'm concerned, you've decided on the merits of a car based on the color, without bothering to drive it to see how it feels.

And if I could, I would go back and mod you down simply for forcing me to resort to a tired and overly abused car analogy to get my equally ambiguous point across. ;)

It's funny though, so many comments yet nobody has said "Well I like KDE 4.1 because ..." Just "You shouldn't ask us for our opinion because we wont give you one because..."

Why should people who actually use it have to justify it to the people who want to judge it based on screenshots? If you want to try it, it's available on a number of distros.

In fact, with little effort, it's fairly easy to download and compile from SVN.

Try it, you might be surprised.
