KDE 5.0: 4 Things We Want To See

KDE

KDE 4.8 is awesome in every way. It works great on a wide range of hardware, and older hardware too! The KDE 5.0 release, on the other-hand, is filled with mystery. That’s what were here for! Here is a list of things that we would like to see in KDE 5.0.

It’s also good for April Fools jokes! It took me only about 6 hours to re-create Microsoft Outlook in Qt, and sell it as a news story on April 1st. The results are very convincing!
