KDE 4.0
 
Does anyone have a good source list for KDE 4.0 beta?

Agreeing with carlos, it looks (and acts) almost like a re-skinned win desktop.

I don't have a source DD, I do really think you would be impressed after an 'apt-get install gnome' or 'install XFCE'.

Let it load everything, then winnow out what you don't need. Bet you a cup of coffee it takes you away from KDE.

I used gnome when I first started and was not impressed. I like KDE...and I guess I will stay with 3.5.7 until there's a stable 4.0 out there.

Have you been to their site yet?
http://www.kde.org/

It's loaded with mirrors, tutorials and such.

That's just it, I have yet to run a version without some kind of crash within the first 2 sessions, literally. Gnomes always been stable for me.

KDE has always been a problem for me as well. I tried Kubuntu 7.04 again the other day and it took a while for a few hardware pieces to start working correctly. I've never had that problem with any version of Ubuntu (Gnome).

The newest version of Ubuntu comes out in another 2-3 months, same with Kubuntu and Xubuntu so keep an eye out!

I gave up on it six_storm. This Debian install I have now is the longest a linux has stayed on my hdd without re-installing for a long time.

All the pluses, none of the glitches.

I don't know how much time has passed since then, but if I were you I would give it a try again. :)

After all, on Ubuntu it's just a matter of "apt-get install gnome" ;)

And you can always switch back to KDE in 2 seconds should you not like Gnome :)

If you want stability, stay away from the KDE betas.

I wonder myself if Doc tried configuring it to taste or just went by first impressions. Out of the box Gnome is pretty bland looking. :)
