KDE "Mobile devices that adapt to who you are, reflecting what you are doing when you are doing it. This concept is at the heart of the Plasma Active user experience. Plasma Active One was released in October 2011, providing early adopters the first opportunity to experience Activities on a tablet. Since then, the design and development team behind this open source touch interface has been hard at work on an update. The fruits of their labor were released today, December 14, 2011 as Plasma Active Two."

It still looks like a big mess, imho. But I guess they are still developing it. ;)

I think trying to stick to the activities paradigm for a tablet was a mistake.

Yep. Not even on the tablet. I've said from the beginning that the whole concept of activities is a mistake. The vast majority of people are not even remotely that organized that they will create activities for different projects and connect their files and web pages and relevant apps together. I have yet to see even a convincing example of how it might work, or why that is in any way better than organizing things in traditional ways (in folders).

You say this as if the current plasma one is not usable with a single activity.
