I like the new feature where you can tell KDE to restart/shutdown but load another OS on the next boot (on a multi-boot machine).

http://kde.org/announcements/4.7/platform.php

AFAIK KDE SC 4.7 is the only desktop on the planet that can do that.


Actually, OpenSolaris/OpenIndiana has option to select boot environment from its gnome restart/shutdown dialog. So nothing new, they have had this functionality for years now ;)

Correct, it's nothing new. It has been in KDE for years too, in KDE 3 and 4 both(Perhaps even KDE 2). The only new part is that it now also works with GRUB 2. So for users used to distributions using different boot loaders like LILO, GRUB 1 and whatever Solaris uses, this is nothing new.
