Default Is KDE 4.2 the Answer to the Linux Desktop?

KDE 4.2 as update for Fedora 9? Great news thinking on people who have not updated yet. Like me, because the issue with Intel Graphics Driver (Intel GM965).


2009/1/28 Leandro M. César <leandro.cesar@gmail.com>

I believe that KDE is the best shot against Vista. But not against Gnome yet.

"Red Hat Fedora Project Leader Paul Frields also struck an optimistic tone on the KDE 4.2 release.



"The many Plasma enhancements for usability, and the return of functionality that some users found missing earlier in the 4.x series, should make KDE's audience happy with the new release," Frields told /InternetNews.com/. Fedora is planning on including KDE 4.2 in the upcoming Fedora 11 Alpha set for February 3rd."

I did. Unfortunately, I'm not able to control how quotes are used
by journalists. Welcome to marketing!

I'd encourage folks to leave additional comments at sites where they
can augment information like this.

Default Is KDE 4.2 the Answer to the Linux Desktop?

I have been monitoring tweets (through Twitter) with the keyword: fedora.

Something on KDE 4.2 and Fedora came up today. There's a small mention
of KDE 4.2 being available shortly in Fedora here:

http://www.genbeta.com/2009/01/28-instalar-kde-42-en-ubuntu-opensuse-y-fedora

I don't read or write in Spanish (which the blog seems to be written
in), but a free translation from the Web on the paragraph about Fedora
indicates:
"In any case, it is expected that very quick [KDE 4.2] be incorporated
to the official sources."


Maybe the people who are already tweeting about this will pick it up
when it's done. Or fedora folks could mention it's coming in their
tweets. This may also help get the word out.


Cheers!

Ok.

There are not official news from Fedora, but KDE 4.2 is available from KDE-Red Hat testing repo for Fedora 10 (not 9). So People should think that will be available comming soon. Personally I would like for Fedora 9 too.

I have added a comment. It is important to highlight this since Fedora
is probably the one distribution pushing out major updates like this to
even previous releases.

Personally, I prefer KDE over all other desktop environment. The main cause is that KDE offers a close approach to Open source feeling when dealing with the operating system environment. It might be that I did not use Genome as I used the KDE but I Always Install Both Desktops and end up using KDE only. as for me as much far is the DE from MS desktop as far its close to my heart. This is a personal opinion, as a desktop user.
