KDE 4.3 Released – One Great Desktop

KDE 4.3.0 is now officially released, and the first looks are amazing.

I was using the stable KDE 4.2, and the differences with in 4.3 are obvious and many. The most noticeable, of course, is the completely new ‘Air’ default theme, which, in my opinion is the best default theme for any OS or desktop.

I have just downloaded the binaries for openSUSE 11.1 from the KDE4 repositories. And my first experience is that it is great, perhaps even better than great. The overall pliability and verve of the whole system has gone up. I loved the highly improved response of the whole desktop and the improvements to Dolphin. Some of them are so finely implemented, I wonder why KDE didn’t release them earlier.

There is complete announcement and changelist back at the KDE website.

    KDE was developed to look like windows. That was the point of the project, to give users a windows-like experience on Unix. You must be confused.
