KDE 4.1 rocks the desktop

Posted by: Anonymous [ip:] on July 29, 2008 06:25 PM
I use to run kde. I switched over to gnome. I just cannot understand why kde crashes. It crashes on ...this is my 9th pc? I can be doing something and a random pop up says crash. I switched to windows. About 1 year ago, i came to linux and dove into gnome. Very stable! Never crashes! when kde4 came out, I decided to give this a chance. OMG! SUCKS! It needs alot of work and ill be looking into KDE 5 after they decide to dump kde 4. The oxygen theme and the gui is a vast improvement but this is no excuse to break compatability. I'll stick with gnome: I'll try kde 5 but I'll stick with gnome. gnome+compiz fusion+awn or kiba+ conky+screenlets does way more than i can ever do on a kde 4. Really.... it runs @ silk smooth speed and not that 4fps animation of plasmoids. It is a total eyesoar just seeing how bad it animates.

we need
1. Stability
2. Something that doesnt break compatability
3. a desktop and not a folder containment.

on the plus side, oxygen is clean, new interface is good but not as good as gnome. and It is being worked on.
