Get the Beauty of KDE on Your Tablet

Filed under
KDE

Almost exactly two months ago I wrote about KDE, the free desktop environment for Linux that's renowned for its polish and ease of use.

At the time, a version of the open source software called Plasma Active One had just been launched for tablets and other mobile devices, but it was compatible with only a limited range of Intel-based devices.

On Wednesday, however, the KDE project announced the arrival of the next iteration of the software, Plasma Active Two, with significantly improved performance, a raft of new features, and compatibility with many more mobile devices.

If you use a tablet and want to see the beauty of KDE on your device, this could be a good time to give it a look. The video below offers a small taste of what you'll find.
