Linux basics: The KDE desktop

KDE 4 Desktop

This Techrepublic Gallery will introduce you to the KDE 4 desktop. From this gallery you will see just how simple and user-friendly the KDE desktop is. KDE has undergone some drastic changes from version 3 to version 4. Some feel the changes were a step back. I think, after viewing this gallery, you will agree the changes were a step forward.

This is the default KDE 4 desktop. As you can see it covers almost all of the standard desktop elements you have come to know and depend upon. The only thing missing would be desktop icons.
