Howtoforge posted a guide about setup PCLinuxOS 2010 as Linux desktop

"This tutorial shows how you can set up a PCLinuxOS 2010 desktop (with KDE) that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge."

KDE 4.4 RC 1 is now available

"Today, KDE has released the first release candidate of the next version of the KDE Software Compilation (KDE SC). KDE SC 4.4 Release Candidate 1 provides a testing base for identifying bugs in the upcoming KDE Software Compilation 4.4, with its components the KDE Plasma Workspaces, the Applications powered by KDE, and the KDE Development Platform.

The list of changes between 4.3 and 4.4 is especially long. Important changes can be observed all over the place: The Nepomuk Semantic Search framework has made leaps: A new storage backend makes it a lot faster. New user interfaces to interact with the Nepomuk database are first delivered with KDE 4.4.0. A timeline view of your files makes finding files used in the past easier.

The Plasma Desktop has been further polished. Many user interface elements have received attention by developers and designers. The new widget explorer provides a richer experience for managing desktop widgets. Plasma widgets can now be shared with other users over the network and the handling of storage devices in the desktop shell has been streamlined. Also, in 4.4 Plasma's little sibling, the Netbook shell debuts as a technology preview.

New applications on the horizon range from Blogilo, a rich-client blogging tool to Cantor and Rocs, two scientific applications for advanced math and graph theory needs. Many other applications, such as the Gwenview image viewer and the Dolpin file
manager have been further improved. The KDE Development Platform adds the new KAuth authorization framework for easy and secure privilege escalation, printing of odd and even pages, scanner support for the Windows platform and the first pieces of integration of the popular webkit rendering engine.

These are only some of the new features one can expect from the new KDE Software Compilation 4.4, there is also a longer list of the changes. The long list of changes also comes with an even longer list of smaller and bigger bugfixes and performance enhancements which lead to a noticable improvement of the user experience. The release is named after Cornelius Schumacher, who is and continues to be one of the cornerstones of the KDE community."

KDE 4.4 Beta 2 has been released

"Today, KDE has released a second beta version of the 4.4 series, which will debut with a stable release in January 2010. While the first beta of 4.4 has been quite a bumpy ride, most of the grave problems have been fixed. KDE-PIM should be fully operational again, and for many users, compositing in KDE's Window Manager is back again. Meanwhile, the bug squashing frenzy is in full swing and will continue for another month until KDE 4.4 will be branched and frozen for release. Please help us test this version (you will have some time over christmas, no?), so we can make 4.4.0 and its subsequent releases ever more stable and pleasant to work with."

Techgage posted a new editorial: KDE 4 Isn't Too Bad, After All

"When KDE 4 was first released, I didn't care too much for it, and I thought I never would. But due to recent circumstances, I ended up installing the latest version to see if things changed for the better, and to my surprise, they have. That might be an understatement, because as I see it, KDE 4.3 is easily one of the most polished desktop environments out there."

KDE 4.3 RC3 has been released

"Even in the hot phase up to KDE 4.3.0, there have been quite a bunch of fixes to KDE's 4.3 branch. The KDE Release Team has decided to err on the safe side and do another release candidate before KDE 4.3.0 comes out. Dirk Mller has rolled tarballs of the current state of KDE 4.3 and put them up for testers, packages for some distributions are already under way. This also means that the release of KDE 4.3.0 has been postponed for one week. The new planned release date is August, 4th 2009.

One notable change since RC2 is a performance fix for Plasma's caching of rendered SVG graphics that lead to the applet being frozen for a short while after resizing it. A regression that cropped up after RC2, and which resulted in HTTP redirects being broken has been fixed in RC3 as well.

Please give this KDE 4.3 RC3 some good testing to make sure KDE 4.3.0 will be as flawless as possible."
