kickoff season

Filed under
SUSE

openSUSE 10.2 beta 1 has recently been released and one of the highlights of this release is Kickoff – the revolutionary and redesigned KDE menu for openSUSE 10.2.

on first glance, one would already notice that it’s not the traditional KDE menu. it looks pretty stylish too. but it’s not just all eye candy. in fact they’ve done a study to come up with this totally new and redesigned menu. although this is still under heavy development, i find the usability of Kickoff, as of now, already very good for my taste. Kickoff provides a lot of things you need to get things started with just a few clicks and without overdoing it.

Full Story.
