OSNews, Generic OSes While last week was a tad bit uneventful, this week made up for it. Not only did we get the long-awaited release of KDE 4.2, we also gained more insight into the whole Palm/Apple thing, NVIDIA's CEO said a few funny things, and we got an important sit-rep on SkyOS straight from Robert Szeleney himself. This week's My Take is about life, death, and resurrection.

Akonadi is a neat backend thing but how does it specifically make your experience better?


I'm wondering the same thing.
Akonadi enabled or disabled doesn't seem to have any effect on my experience with kontact.
Everything runs as it does with or without akonadi.

All it's good for, as far i can tell, is keeping my cpu warm.

Indeed. Akonadi is neat, but for end users atm it is no big deal. What is neat is what it allows developers to...well...develop. It takes time for frameworks to be used by app writers.
