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 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.


Nice to hear that, someone liking it. I can't see myself using activities to launch documents and apps in a daily basis. Seems too intrusive to me.

I think it would be easier to see it as some strange kind of start menu mixed in with a tab switcher that controls desktops and windows.

It doesn't seem any more intrusive than using something like gnome-do. and it's not like you won't still have a file manager.

Sounds like you have more of a problem with Gnome Zeitgeist than with the shell.
