Filed under
KDE

earthweb.com: As a devoted free software user, I'm almost as likely to stick my hand down a running garbarator as buy a copy of Windows 7. In fact, so far, I haven't tried Windows 7.

Software

aseigo.blogspot: There is small trend currently to write a blog entry or article comparing "KDE 4" and "GNOME 3".

Filed under

earthweb.com: Imagine being able to search for help online without leaving your desktop application. An About dialog you could use to contact the developer.

Filed under
KDE

blogs.pcworld.co.nz: The main difference between KDE 3 and KDE 4 is that the former is fixed and static while the latter is dynamic and interactive.
