Default CentOS 6: Making KDE Default


Its pretty nice and actually runs quite well as a Xen guest (my hardware
at home doesn't support full virtualization)...

I believe its more on par with Fedora 12 (maybe 13?). KDE is fairly
modern (4.2 something I believe). Unfortunately, the KDE version is a
version before the "tabbing unrelated windows" feature that was introduced
in, I believe, 4.3 (its the group window feature)...

Other than that, the GUI feels modern (I happen to run RHEL 6 as my
desktop @ work). Obviously most libraries are fairly recent... If KDE
was a little more modern (aka KDE 4.3+) I'd use it as my desktop OS at

I have noticed that some of my spec files don't work right under 6 - I
don't have an example on hand at the moment...and haven't looked into it
closely yet...
