KDE "After years of focusing on further improving KDE4 two weeks ago the developers of the free desktop announced the next big step for their project: KDE Frameworks 5.0. But as long-time developer - and Plasma team leader - Aaron Seigo points out in an interview with derStandard.at/web, the source-incompatible changes shall be held to a minimum. Also calls Frameworks 5.0 only the "first step", new Applications and Workspace releases are to follow later, Seigo goes on to talk about the chances in the mobile market with Plasma Active and further areas of collaboration with the other big free desktop: GNOME."

I believe Aaron Seigo "vision" is killing KDE. Plasma in the end, does nothing like was initially told it would, as most users simply do not use activities, plasmoids or even that terrible netbook shell version.


plasma-netbook is awesome! Ok, so you have to manually add a taskbar to really make it awesome, but it works extremely well on small screens (like palmtops) or low-resolution screens (like SDTV). It even works decently on an eeePC 701 (except that one of the updates to the Intel video driver made it flicker all the time).

plasma-netbook is what Gnome-Shell wishes it could be. ;)
