KDE 4 revises the desktop

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 71.131.218.194] on January 14, 2008 10:20 PM
I'm not going to switch to this until openSUSE adopts it as the default desktop. There's too much risk that stuff will simply crash. I'm already having a certain problem with Konqueror crashing in 10.3 when copying files - which never happened before 10.3. So clearly an upgrade to a 4.0 release of KDE would be a dangerous move. I don't have time to be debugging half-tested new software. I also do very little customization of my desktop, so I have really very little interest in mods to panels, widgets, and the like. As long as I have a wallpaper changer that works (and that crashed last night while updating the list of directories), I'm usually happy. The changes described in the article simply don't excite me, and some - especially the Start menu changes - irritate me. I prefer the classic KDE menu and intend to keep it.
