KDE The KDE Software Compilation 4.11 has been released.

Gearing up for long term maintenance, Plasma Workspaces delivers further improvements to basic functionality with a smoother taskbar, smarter battery widget and improved sound mixer. The introduction of KScreen brings intelligent multi-monitor handling to the Workspaces, and large scale performance improvements combined with small usability tweaks make for an overall nicer experience.

This release marks massive improvements in the KDE PIM stack, giving much better performance and many new features. Kate improves the productivity of Python and Javascript developers with new plugins, Dolphin became faster and the educational applications bring various new features.

This release of KDE Platform 4.11 continues to focus on stability. New features are being implemented for our future KDE Frameworks 5.0 release, but for the stable release we managed to squeeze in optimizations for our Nepomuk framework.

That name.

I'm surprised to see so much hate for KDE on here. I personally feel that it is the best DE I have used and it's not even close. I also happen to think it looks quite nice. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

Well, you know what they say: those who can't do whine.

Right, they whine.
What is on their screen? At 98% of the surface, a browser.

KDE is perfectly usable and if you do not like what it looks like, then change it, there are loads of themes or you build your own.
And please do not forget, you did not pay for it.
