KDE The KDE team has released KDE 4.3. This release comes packed with improvements and bug fixes - in fact, over the last six months, 10000 bugs were squashed, 2000 feature requests handled, and 63000 changes were checked in by 700 people. We've already talked about this new release in quite some detail last week, but let's take a look at the most important new features anyway.

KDE 4.3 is released now. Windows 7 isn't.


And surprising enough, Windows 7 RC is more stable and faster than KDE4.

KDE 4 started its design before Vista was released.


But not before Vista was designed ;)

Nope.

"KDE 4 started its design before Vista was released.

Debatable. Aero didn't appear in Vista design until late in the game (as MS was initially primarily concerned about things like DRM and WinFS, some of which still haven't appeared).

KDE isn't a complete OS it is just a desktop. It is the rough equivalent of Aero.

Oh, BTW ... are you saying that Windows 7 is the same design as Vista? Are you quite sure you want to say that?

Nope.


In my own experience, it is ;)

Aero was demoed by MS in 2003. It didn't have transparencies and stuff, but it was there. I believe in 2004 I was playing with Aero on Longhorn 4074.

WinFS was scrapped and replaced with Windows Search.

KDE isn't a complete OS it is just a desktop. It is the rough equivalent of Aero.


Aero is a theme and a set of UI guidelines. KDE is akin to the userland of Windows.

Yes. Windows 7 is based on Vista's technologies. What is wrong with that?

Just because Vista has a bad reputation it doesn't mean that the technologies in it are bad.

Hmmmmm, and this would be after Microsoft went through a six/seven year alpha and beta cycle with Vista before they got to 7?

You people crack me up.
