openSUSE 11.3 with KDE 4.6 (mini review)

Filed under
KDE
SUSE

Despite the troubles in Novell / Attachmate land, openSUSE remains strong and focused with the availability of KDE 4.6.

Another update to KDE, it's now on version 4.6. Thinking back to the very first KDE 4.x release, there is no doubt that the KDE team have made a lot of progress to this date.

As a desktop environment KDE provides a modern looking and stylish desktop that feels fast and has plenty of eye candy.

Being a KDE fan I decided to give KDE 4.6 a go with openSUSE 11.3 since openSUSE provides the most polished user experience with KDE. By default openSUSE 11.3 ships with KDE 4.4.4 but the team have provided a stable KDE 4.5 repository which I highly recommend.

Samsung Continues to Lessen Android Dependence

Samsung's partnership with members of the Linux Foundation appears to be bearing fruit. The partnership's mobile operating system -- dubbed Tizen -- is Linux-based. Samsung's initial Tizen phone rollout was rocky: The company's highly anticipated Samsung Z launch in Russia was quickly canceled last year, and the company blamed concerns about the ecosystem for the delay. Unfortunately, in many cases, ecosystem development presents a "chicken and egg" problem: Developers won't build apps until you have users, and users won't select your product until you have apps.
