After KDE 4.2 was released, I have to say, I was hooked. The interface got cleaned up, everything is more elegant, practically bug-free, and not as sluggish as the original release (it's not as fast as GNOME yet, but it's been alright). As a big GNOME fan for quite a while now, the 4.2 release is almost at what could be considered commercially-ready. Will it be KDE that will tumble the world onto the GNU/Linux platform? I even remember seeing a photo of a bunch of KDE 4-based computers on display in Germany to celebrate the 4.0 beta. I can't seem to recall where I'd seen it, though.
Below is a screenshot of my current desktop, and I love it:
I have moved my blog to Wordpress at theunixgeek.wordpress.com. I will still be checking back periodically on this one as well, though. 19 April 2009
