KDE 4.0 Alpha 2 Released

KDE Community are now immensely proud to have put the second Alpha version of what will probably be the worlds most popular desktop environment in a few years.

Hundreds of KDE hackers are now conspiring to make the best graphical user interface environment ever created in Glasgow, Scottland. A preview of their plans for world desktop environment domination was releasted from there on July 4th, 2007.

0.1. New Desktop

The KDE 4 desktop will look very different from KDE 2.x and 3.x. The new user interface is codenamed Plasma and it rumored to be very slick.


0.2. It's Alpha

Note that this KDE 4 release is only there to let you try it and see what it looks like. You can see what the plans are and what KDE 4 will probably look like, but it's not even worth trying to use this on a daily basis. Alpha2 is for geeks who want to know what the worlds future desktop environment will look like, it's not to be deployed and rolled out to every desktop system in all the worlds large and greedy corporations.

The KDE 4 SUSE is a good way to test try it out without installing anything on your computer.
