Activity-oriented vs Application-oriented workspaces  View Printable Version 
Sunday, December 26 2010 @ 11:36 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEI don’t normally comment on other people’s software… but… a little while ago, opensuse was wondering whether KDE apps would work with these Gnome Shell requirements. Last time I checked, their “Activities” sounded like virtual desktops, but now they’ve returned to an application-based shell. This in sharp contrast to Plasma Desktop’s increasingly Activity-oriented workspace.

So what does that mean? Well, in gnome-shell, windows are organized by application – by the binary that spawns them. All your firefox windows are grouped together, all your okular windows grouped together, etc. You can still group windows on virtual desktops, but alt-tab is application-based, so as soon as you’ve got more windows than screen space you may as well have everything on one desktop.

Thursday, December 09 2010 @ 11:34 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEPart of the big hype over the release of KDE 4 was its new and improved eye candy, mostly due to the Plasma workspace. Those who liked the changes, loved the new KDE from the beginning. Those who did not are still complaining about it. But like any good desktop environment, you are by no means stuck with the default look. In fact, KDE offers more easily customizable features than any other. What follows are 7 ways to get the desktop look you dreamed about when you were a child.

Nokia announcement equals even more momentum for Qt  View Printable Version 
Thursday, October 21 2010 @ 11:25 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEIn the last few hours, a press release was issued globally by Nokia. The focus of the press release was to announce that Nokia will have sole focus on Qt as the development framework for applications on the Symbian and MeeGo platforms.

At the recently held Qt Developer Days Munich, Nokia CTO Rich Green gave a keynote where he also affirmed this commitment. His words were roughly ‘Nokia is eating its own dog food with Qt’.

On the fly Preview on Quanta  View Printable Version 
Thursday, September 30 2010 @ 07:46 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDESince I begin to use KDE, my big desire It was to contribut with code, but I would have to study different things (indeed that was what I wanted the most: a challenge), and I admit that I thought many times that I would never be able to do it. So I decided to make talks about “KDE for Beginners” (beginners like I was), It was a quickly way to promote and contribut to FOSS, more quickly than to develop.

5 Intriguing KDE Apps  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, September 29 2010 @ 05:56 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEThe beauty of an open development platform is that anyone can take a stab at creating an application. KDE, which is built upon the Qt application and UI framework, is a shining example of this. A quick look at KDE-Apps.org reveals that new apps are added daily. I periodically browse through the latest KDE apps to see if anything stands out, and I found these five, some of which are in early development.

Man crawls out of Ubuntu cave, finds KDE, likes it  View Printable Version 
Friday, September 24 2010 @ 08:36 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEAn articulate, accurate, and well paced article on KDE 4.5, marred only by a point of view that I cannot seem to reconcile - one that appears to state that Ubuntu is the only relevant distribution, and Gnome is the only desktop anyone has ever seen before.

It is quite possible that I am overreacting, or reading far too much into it, but read it for yourself, and see what you think:

(We'll just pretend that the headline of the article doesn't exist)
