Dazzling New KDE 4.1 Theme

by @ 1:57 pm. Filed under KDE Tips

First, as everyone knows, KDE is the best desktop environment there is. Linus Torvalds says it best, “I personally just encourage people to switch to KDE. This ‘users are idiots, and are confused by functionality’ mentality of Gnome is a disease. If you think your users are idiots, only idiots will use it. I don’t use Gnome, because in striving to be simple, it has long since reached the point where it simply doesn’t do what I need it to do. Please, just tell people to use KDE.”

Don’t look at me, I didn’t say it. It just happens to be correct. As long as we’re all clear. That quote has been a badge on my OpenSUSE Linux blog since day one.

What is exciting to see is some of the beautiful artwork for the themes that is being done for KDE 4.1. Specifically, let’s hear it for the new KDE 4.1 Plasma theme:

    You know it’s funny you say gnome is so supposed to be simple — yeah, it’s “simple” to use but more bloated than KDE. Apparently, the gnome developers are … let’s just say “not geniuses”. If you don’t believe me just install the gnome and kde environments on the same (old) computer. Tell me which one is actually responsive.

    and yet i’m currently fiddling with a couple of linux boots on my lowish spec machine, and it’s gnome that seems to be winning on responsiveness compared to kde 4.1. go figure.
