KDE For a very long time now, I've been on the hunt for a distribution that really put a lot of effort into their KDE4 implementation. This has been a frustrating search, full of broken installations, incredibly slow performance, and so many visual artifacts they made my eyes explode. Since KDE 4.3 is nearing release, I had to pick up this quest in order to take a look at where 4.3 stands - and I found a home in the KDE version of Fedora 11. Read on for a look as to where KDE 4.3 currently stands.

I thought KDE 4.1 was supposed to be ready. Maybe by 4.8 it'll be usable.

Distributions are not ready for KDE4.

Sounds funny, but it is true.

Well, if by distributions you mean Kubuntu, you might be right. However, a lot of people mention Pardus here, plus I can tell you from personal experience that Mandriva is definitely ready ;)

Obviously you haven't been reading release announcements. Reading is a good thing. For instance, in the release announcement of KDE 4.2.0 they said:

After the release of KDE 4.1, which was aimed at casual users, the KDE Community is now confident we have a compelling offering for the majority of end users.


Quite modest words in my opinion.

If you're a gnome fanboy, like I'm of KDE, btw, I'd save the jokes for whenever gnome 3.0 is out with that horrible shell.

I was skeptical of gnome shell but i've been using it randomly and i can see lots of things that are really interesting and would be easy to use as far as daily operation goes.

I've actually become MORE interested in GNOME 3.0 since i took a look at gnome shell.
