Okay then. We're relying on mirror dust and fairies but now we have a plan which is progress - Emma
Profit is a Necessary Element of Philanthropy.
I myself was originally a KDE user. Honestly I prefer KDE 3.5, it was the peak of the graphical user interface. Fun, friendly, and customizable. KDE 4 has awesome features, but not the polish. (At the very least it is packaged poorly by most distros).
It was a great review, though I should note that updates breaking is merely a development release issue. I would avoid a partial update unless you know it will not break anything you need. Short and to the point, told everyone what you felt and what they they might like. Great job.
It'd be far more practical to finish porting Firefox to Qt and make it look and feel like Konqueror, than to try to add Firefox's XUL-rendering ability to both Konqueror's chrome and renderer just so it could use Firefox extensions.Konqueror still doesn't support a lot of plugins – it would be nice if it was backwards compatible with Firefox extensions.
A maintenance release is exactly what both KDE and Kubuntu need.
Great review, very very thorough!! It actually made me excited about updating to Kubuntu Lucid Lynx.... I had been very apprehensive.
Well, I still think I'll wait a little bit for bugs to be ironed out...
I have tried 4.4, amazing work, I really will not undercredit them at all. Just KDE 3.5 has minor stuff, such as the system colors in system monitor and etc, that were amazingly done. It is just opinion. As for what I meant about packaging is that KDE seldom has many themes or color schemes by default on most distros, similar to that. It makes up for it in all the innovation and interface potential. I honestly am fond of it, but I am liking the newer changes to Gnome better is all.
I am glad we have such choices, and I would rather pitch in than complain about KDE, I will explain why I am not using it anymore though. Just it is not what suits me.
Why review a beta release when the official release is out a week later?
Do you folks like coffee?
Exactly, aside from a few bugs. What if you ran into a crippling bug and you put it in your review, only to be fixed for the final release? It would falsely put people off of the release, which could have been avoided if you waited a week.
EDIT: That being said, it is a very good review!
