RE: Arch Linux KDE SC 4.4

Installation instructions for KDE SC 4.4 on Arch Linux are here:

It is 300 MBytes of download, so I am still in the process of seeing if this works as advertised.

It is a good thing that my ISP provides an un-metered mirror for Arch Linux, but even so this is going to cost me a few hours at least.

In the interim, while I wait, I have been reading the odd review:

With the KDE Software Compilation (SC) 4.4 release today, KDE's desktop evolution continues with more than 1,400 new features and nearly 7,300 bugs fixed.

1,400 new features for the desktop software. Never let it be said that FOSS doesn't innovate!

I'm very happy to report another apparent and welcome performance improvement in this new release of KDE.

I'd guess that the major contribution to this further performance gain is due this time around to Qt 4.6.
