Novell and Ximian "Novell today is rolling out the newest edition of its flagship enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) 11. The new releases are the first major updates since the SLES and SLED 10 releases in July of 2006. With SLES 11, Novell is also providing a baseline image so software vendors can easily build appliances. The concept is something know as a JeOS (Just enough Operating System) and has been trumpeted by Novell as the future of operating systems."

Well, I have been using KDE 4.2 for the past month and have been testing it on a small group (15 people) of users and they are, for the first time, raving about a non-Microsoft product.

There are small gotchas here and there, but KDE 4 is a much better product than KDE3 ever was, even if it isn't as mature in some areas. But guess what? We can pick and choose.

For instance, we still use the kde3 version of k3b and have settled on evolution as the email client for now.

Have you actually used kde 4.2? If these were very conservative users, I would have gone to Debian and KDE 3.5.10, which is a very good and mature product, but there are lots of improvements to the overall fit and finish of the desktop in kde4 that make it more appropriate for this specific deployment.

Hope that sheds some light on my question.

Peace
