If you are new to Linux then I'm sure you are giving up lots of time choosing Desktop Environment of your Linux Distribution. You are probably thinking to give a try to each one of them but that's very time consuming. That's why here I'm reviewing the 5 Best Linux Desktop Environments with the pros & cons. The article gives you what you should know for choosing a DE. So let's get started!

  • Buildsystem BoF at Akademy
  • GSOC Midterm Evaluation results declared Smile
  • Kexi 3 powered by the new KReport library

    The Kexi report plugin has reached milestone 1 (build and display). In Kexi 3, the report plugin is powered by the new KReport library, which has been separated out of Calligra into it's own repository to allow re-use by other projects.

  • GSoC 2015: Midterm report

    3D visualization in LabPlot is supporting now several types of data:

    File sources (currently only .obj and .stl files)

  • KDE project activity reports

    I’d like to introduce KDE Reports, a web app that shows graphical reports that can help you get insight about activity going on with different KDE projects.

  • KDE and Qt at FISL 2015

    Repeating what became a constant on last years, KDE project is bringing an eventful series of presentations and activities on community driven software to the FISL, the Fórum Internacional de Software LIvre, which will be realized at Porto Alegre, south of Brazil, starting July 7.

  • KDE Applications receive security fixes

    KDE recently released the latest slew of security updates for KDE Applications 15.04, bumping the version number to 15.04.3. Other than security fixes there are translation updates, there are no big features so upgrading will go smoothly.

  • KDE Applications 15.04.3 Out Now with over 20 Bugfixes

    KDE announced just a few minutes ago the immediate availability of the third maintenance release for the KDE Applications 15.04 software suite that is being distributed as part of the next-generation KDE Plasma 5 desktop environment.

  • Roundcube Next: The Next Steps

    The crowdfunding campaign to provide funding and greater community engagement around the refactoring of Roundcube's core to give it a secure future has just wrapped up. We managed to raise $103,531 from 870 people. This obviously surpassed our goal of $80,000, so we're pretty ecstatic. This is not the end, however: now we begin the journey to delivering a first release of Roundcube Next. This blog entry outines some of that path forward

  • Looks as if Wily got Plasma 5.3.2.

    No backports PPA required.

  • GSoC 2015 midterm update
  • GSoC ’15 Post #3: Install-ed!
  • Joining the press – Which topic would you like to read about?

    Therefore, I thought that a closer collaboration with Linux Veda could be mutually beneficial: Getting exclusive insights directly from a core KDE contributor could give their popularity an additional boost, while my articles could get an extended audience including people who are currently interested in Linux and FOSS, but not necessarily too much interested in KDE yet.

  • Pointing devices KCM: update #2

    Originally I planned to work on the KCM UI at this time. But as I am unsure how it should look like, I started a discussion on VDG forum, and decided to switch to other tasks.

  • Fiber UI Experiments – Conclusion?

    It’s been one heckuva road, but I think the dust is starting to settle on the UI design for Fiber, a new web browser which I’m developing for KDE. After some back-and fourth from previous revisions, there are some exciting new ideas in this iteration! Please note that this post is about design experiments – the development status of the browser is still very low-level and won’t reach the UI stage for some time. These experiments are being done now so I can better understand the structure of the browser as I program around a heavily extension-based UI, so when I do solidify the APIs it we have a rock-solid foundation.

  • KStars GSoC 2015 Project

    This year marks my first year as a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) mentor, and it has been an exciting experience thus far. I have been a KStars developer for the last 12 years and it is amazing what KStars has accomplished in all those years.

  • How KDE VDG Is Trying To Make Open-Source Software Beautiful

    One of the most often voiced complaints about Open Source Software is that it tends to be "ugly" or otherwise aesthetically uninspired. A few years ago a few people in the KDE camp came together and created, what they hoped, would be a solution to that problem: The KDE Visual Design Group.

  • KDE Connect – Insieme, unite unite smartphone

    When I wrote my Kubuntu Vivid review, I mentioned a tool called KDE Connect, which I wasn’t quite sure what it was supposed to be doing. A bunch of you emailed me, telling me it’s a nice little applet that can keep your smartphone notifications in sync with the desktop, as well as allow you to remotely control certain parts of your KDE-flavored desktop from the smartphone.

  • Video review of KDE Plasma 5 from Nerd on the Street
  • Four years later

    At beginning of June 2011 I made my first blog post about KWin support Wayland clients featuring a screenshot of Desktop Grid effect with a Wayland window shown on each desktop.

  • "Private browsing mode" for activities

    The statistics collection feature of KActivities is slowly becoming a core part of Plasma.

  • GSoC update: ocs-server
  • Fun with onion skins

    The first new feature of the GSoC project on animation in Krita is has landed in git. Until now, I have been mostly concentrating on refactoring the core structures toward their final form, which has taken much more time than I anticipated. Fortunately, it is now mostly done, and I am getting to the point where progress is more visible.

Subresource Integrity Support Ready For Firefox 43, Chrome 45

With the upcoming releases of the Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome web-browsers is support for the W3C Subresource Integrity (SRI) specification. The Subresource Integrity feature allows web developers to ensure that externally-loaded scripts/assets from third-party sources (e.g. a CDN) haven't been altered. The SRI specification adds a new "integrity" HTML attribute when loading such assets where you can specify a hash of the file source expected -- the loaded resource must then match the hash for it to be loaded.
