> Cohen discuss:
> KDE 4 - the good, the bad, and the broken
> KDE was developed to give Unix applications a common look and feel. From
> 1996 to 2007 the desktop environment saw many improvements and changes. In
> January 2008 a rewrite of the entire desktop environment and many of it's
> core applications was performed. The rewrite, called KDE 4, led to a
> dramatic change in KDE's stance. Once noted for its configurablity, KDE 4
> had significantly fewer options than previous KDE versions. Core
> applications and the desktop environment itself were missing critical
> features. Crashes were common. One year later KDE 4.2 was introduced,
> promising to address all these issues. Additionally, several innovative
> technologies were introduced then. In this talk we will examine KDE 4.4 and
> concentrate on one innovative feature (the Good), one questionable design
> decision (the Bad), and one critical bug (the Broken).
