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 on my system

I have Ubuntu/Kubuntu 9.04 installed on my desktop system at home. It is a 7 year old desktop with a P4 2.26 with 768MB of RAM and a nVidia Ti4200 64MB and Kubuntu's KDE 4.2 works fine on it. I usually boot into GNOME because it is more polished at the moment compared to KDE (at least on Canonical's systems). Performance wise GNOME is a little snappier than KDE (LXDE is by far the quickest as it should be), but I don't seem to be having the same problems with KDE that others are reporting, although I did have them with both 4.0 and 4.1 so maybe I'm just lucky this go around.

Admittedly I just use Linux as a hobby OS and not for any serious work for which I use my Dell laptop running Vista. Of course my serious work is primarily Public Relations (word processing) and light web design (think Word Press and Joomla). I do use a lot of cross-platform open source software though, such as Audacity, Firefox, Open-Office and others. I'm waiting for KDE for Windows to improve a little more so that I can start playing with it more on my hobby box. It just seems like too much hassle at the moment when there is more I can learn about CSS, Javascript, and PHP.
