KDE

KDE 4.1 was released last week and there has been a lot of positive coverage in the press and the blogosphere about it. (Side note .. The promo team is busy collecting a list of these articles and putting them together for publication on kde.org.)

With the release of 4.1, KDE executed on our collective commitment to release in July. More importantly, that release fulfilled the milestone we set out for ourselves: a day-to-day usable desktop shell, more polish on the applications, lots of bugs fixed, more platform coverage and more application porting underway.

Make no mistake about it: 4.0 was absolutely required for the development team to successfuly unfold KDE4 over the coming years; but with 4.1 it is indeed time to look forward, not back.

So .. looking forward:

The hiatus is over: I'm back.

  • The Linux Migration: April 2017 Progress Report
    In December 2016, I kicked off a migration to Linux (from OS X) as my primary laptop OS. In the nearly 4 months since the initial progress report, I’ve published a series of articles providing updates on things like which Linux distribution I selected, how I’m handling running VMs on my Linux laptop, and integration with corporate collaboration systems (here, here, and here). I thought that these “along the way” posts would be sufficient to keep readers informed, but I’ve had a couple of requests in the last week about how the migration is going. This post will help answer that question by summarizing what’s happened so far. Let me start by saying that I am actively using a Linux-powered laptop as my primary laptop right now, and I have been doing so since early February. All the posts I’ve published so far have been updates of how things are going “in production,” so to speak. The following sections describe my current, active environment.

Lumina Desktop Gets lumina-mediaplayer

  • 1.3.0 Development Preview: lumina-mediaplayer
  • Lumina Desktop Gets Its Own Media Player
    There's now yet another open-source media player, but this time focused on the BSD-focused Qt-powered Lumina Desktop Environment. Lumina Media Player is one of the new additions for the upcoming Lumina 1.3. Lumina Media Player's UI is quite simple so far and allows playing of local audio/video files along with basic audio streaming -- currently implemented for Pandora.
