Nine Lessons Other Desktops Can Learn from KDE  View Printable Version 
Friday, February 28 2014 @ 04:08 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEThe story of KDE's user revolt is well-known. What is less well known is that, in the six years since then, KDE has been steadily regaining its user-share.

In fact, for the last few years, KDE has registered as the most popular desktop among experienced users. Despite the obvious limitations of reader polls, they show KDE's popularity consistently well ahead of Xfce, the usual runner up, in2011, 2012, and 2013 in LinuxQuestions' Members Choice Awards and in Linux Journal's 2013 Readers' Choice Awards. Even assuming a wide margin of error in the polls, the consistency makes KDE's recovery hard to question.

Wednesday, April 10 2013 @ 10:20 CST

A fresh new KMix  View Printable Version 
Friday, March 22 2013 @ 08:01 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEKMix is KDE’s forgotten redheaded stepchild.

It is old, has been maintained my Christian Esken since early 2001, and has grown organically. Through no fault of Christian’s or anyone else’s, it is buggy, messy, and nobody else wants to help fix it, or at least has the constitution to do so.

Contributed by: Linegod

KDEMicrosoft Office may be the dominant productivity suite in much of the computing world, but it's not for a lack of alternatives.

Two free and open source contenders have already achieved particularly widespread acclaim for their strength and usability--LibreOffice and OpenOffice.org--but this week saw the launch of a third.

This is a huge and exciting step forward for the project as it starts to bring our logistics together.

Canonical pulls the plug on Kubuntu  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, February 07 2012 @ 07:00 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEToday I bring the disappointing news that Canonical will no longer be funding my work on Kubuntu after 12.04. Canonical wants to treat Kubuntu in the same way as the other community flavors such as Edubuntu, Lubuntu, and Xubuntu, and support the projects with infrastructure. This is a big challenge to Kubuntu of course and KDE as well.

New year, new life (or KDE and GTK integration)  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, January 03 2012 @ 06:05 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEOr as they say in Spanish: año nuevo, vida nueva. Well, or not. My new year started the 1st December actually, when I got my engineering degree, but I’ll talk about the project some other day.

Today I’d like to talk about my new job at Netrunner, where I started some days after my graduation.

There I have been working on a KCM module to configure your GTK2/3. To do so, I took Chakra’s kcm and reworked it a little to behave like I wanted to. Now that we’re here, big thanks to the Chakra crowd, specially Manuel Tortosa and José Antonio Sánchez, who let me fiddle with their project.
