Wish list: 10 improvements for KDE 4.2

>>In future versions, perhaps there could be a link that allows you to install themes directly from KDE-Look, similar to the way you can install new Plasma themes.

>>Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, only one Plasmoid, PicoNet, is available to install.

>>Include an RSS newsreader Plasmoid by default

These are already available in the rawhide repository of Fedora and I suspect other distros as well. Which means when the next Fedora release which will actually be the one that uses KDE 4.1 is released it will have these.

As for the memory I just looked at what is eating memory on my system and KDE is eating almost none of it. Fire fox which isn't a KDE application is eating 25% on it's own. I'm not hacking on Firefox as I really like their application. I just think the author should be sure he knows what is using up his memory before posting. Also be aware that memory management in Linux is different than it is in Windows.
