    Default KDE SC 4.6.2 Codename Is Dedicated To GNOME 3.0

    Phoronix: KDE SC 4.6.2 Codename Is Dedicated To GNOME 3.0

    KDE Software Compilation 4.6.2 has been released as the latest monthly point release to the KDE SC 4.6 desktop. It contains the usual bug-fixes, translation updates, and other smaller items that can be safely pushed prior to KDE SC 4.7 this summer. This month's release is also dedicated to the GNOME community for their major GNOME 3.0 release due out today...

    Here here, all mature behaviour. Some *cough* fans *cough* should take note.

    This is like when the Spurs were rooting for the Phoenix Suns because they had beaten them like a drum for the past 5 years LOL!!!

    All jokes aside... I really hope Gnome 3 does well. Nothing inspires innovation like healthy competition. Plus, I like the option of switching DE's if KDE pisses me off, or vice versa.

    The KDE guys have wonderful sense of humour!

    Default Cake

    I think I prefer the tradition the Internet Explorer developers have, of sending their Mozilla rivals cake to celebrate a major release.

    Thumbs up

    I know that this particular post may pack very little value, but I just can't help myself…
    How sweet!

    You can't imagine how happy it makes me to witness how noble can people be when they want to.

    If only they would find the time to fix kmail... and ktimetracker, and improve KWin's compositing performance on radeons, and all the multi monitor shortcomings it has and... etc.

    Why should unpaid KWin developers fix a driver that's developed by full-time developers working for and paid by a giant corporation?
    You're not making sense.

    Btw, following the economics of a free market: If you can't fix problems yourself, you can always hire someone to do it for you.

    As they say: "Talk is cheap". Please provide links to bug reports about all these problems you have. That's the first step to getting the bug fixed. If there is no bug report developers might not know about the bug or might not have enough information to be able to fix it. As for the Radeon, All my computers and laptops have various Radeons and I don't have any problem with KWin performance with them, using the Free drivers that is.
