Review from last month by Ars Technica:

http://arstechnica.com/open-source/news/2008/12/hands-on-kde-4-2-beta-1.ars

I missed this review when it was first up, but then saw the Ars piece about KDE on Windows, so I looked back.

I'll probably stick with Xfce, but the new KDE seems to be coming along well.

looks rather appealing..

I'll have to try that some time. I hear there have been serious bugfixes on dolphin, which is the reason I stopped trying the earlier beta releases

uelsk8s:  You wouldn't happen to have packages for that, would you?  Grin

I do, but since KDE-4.2 was released today I would wait for those

I'm running it here on a VM, and I have to say... it is a whole lot more stable than the last beta I tried

I'm really liking it this time around

been running it for about 2 hours without a single crash...

I will play with it some more.

What does KDE 4 do that Fluxbox doesn't

Apart from being a Desktop environment vs window manager, probably nothing.

I'd say fluxbox does things that kde can't when it comes to managing windows. (like tabbed windows).

Umm... KDE 3.5.x has tabbed windows.  I expect that KDE 4.2 does as well.

Really? I didn't know KDE did such things.  I'll have to investigate on it because @ uni I have to use kde

I didn't know that also, but hey, I don't know a lot of stuff Smiley
I will have to look at that, it would make a big difference. I am stuck with KDE at mom's, sometimes I close windows trying to maximize them Cheesy
