KDE 4.1 rocks the desktop

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 67.88.6.146] on August 05, 2008 04:44 PM
I run sidux and arch in dual boot on a 4yr old laptop, and I have to say that Archlinux's implementation of kde4 , more specifically kdemod4, is great. They have done some great work, Nice job KDE and Arch team. Looking forward to growing with this desktop. for those that are complaining, WTF are you complaining about? Your free to use any other DE/WM you want, including kde3... No one gives a damn what you use except you so why get on here and start complaining about kde4 if that is not a DE you use or plan on using. If your a kde3 user like i am/was, then stop panicking, kde3 is still available.... isn't that one of the reasons FOSS is what it is... freedom to choose... If you do plan on using kde4 then please get involved in the community. otherwise your pointless rants are just that.... Your free to complain as much as you want, but if you don't get involved in the process, then you deserve what you get...

And seriously for those who think kde4 is a vista copy... I can only hope that your emotions got the best of you when you made that comment. The only similarity I see is the panel is black like vista by default ...have you actually used kde4. (staring at screenshots does not count).

A DE war is pointless. gnome and kde are not the same. not even close. That fact that we in the linux community spend our time on trivial issues saddens me. If only our passion for Linux could be used collaboratively to improve the software and community as opposed to this in-house fighting....

3000 out!!!
