KDE: a great alternative for Windows?

KDE: a great alternative for Windows?

When it comes to linux or make people think of Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSUSE and the legacy from GNOME. But besides GNOME is a variant that is quietly developing KDE, KDE remains inherent value from the first version to the latest version 4.8 (Kubuntu 4.12 LTS) is directed to traditional interface familiar to users already use Windows.

I also was a fan of Gnome but current direction of GNOME 3 is different from the habit of using the software on the desktop (mouse + table keys), besides GNOM3 currently not stable. That's why I try to cover KDE economy despite knowing it was a long time.

Minh had to wait 13 KDE Linux mint before the test but also Kubuntu 4.12 LTS to see why. After nearly 1 hour to install the first impression with KDE interface is quite smooth and polished, if those who prefer simplicity at first it feels a bit disappointed that KDE is lucky enough to customize the interface are the following should require little patience and discovery.

The slick interface configured spectacular but do not require high CPU Pentium 4, Atom, Celoron or more, 1G RAM, memory 10GB.

Please introduce people some pictures from computer to share

The main screen you can choose many different types of display screen depending on your interests, will be described below in more detail. Here you select the Desktop icon shows the traditional form.

Another favorite is the workspace for you to sort applications, in addition to OS allows you to select effects on mouse on the corners or edges of the screen. I select the top left corner will show this workspace:

2. Popular applications for the office.

To install the application, there unikey Vietnamese keyboard is a little different than Ubuntu, I would say at the end.

3. Ability to customize the interface
This is something I would love to be able to create a private and convenient interface with usability of each. Even now I still explore and learn, but requires skills in graphics and some knowledge.

Any custom if located in the System Settings include Application Appearance, Desktop Effects, Workspace Appearance. For example, a window like Windows interface

Customizable user interface on the main screen, you can create your own or use the default interface. For example, this interface is convenient for touch applications you can put up to bar first love, hands to touch and drag the page into applications ...

also Widgets can have you down on the App Store, lets you add in the panel or the main screen as you like, can resize, rotate ...

Ability to customize can say is that there is no limit if you're good at graphics, and a little software knowledge can create their own unique interfaces.
