Go KDE 4! Go!

I’ve finally fallen in love with KDE. Finally.

The first live CDs I ever tried were the Knoppix ones and I never really used it much to love KDE. And then came the other distro days (then Mandrake, SuSE, and so on) where I didn’t stay with Linux long enough. Then came the Gentoo days where I never really enjoyed my KDE experience owing to slow startup times of a few multimedia apps. I’ve been using GNOME for a long time until the day KDE 4 RC 2 came out.

KDE apps are on a totally different level compared to GNOME apps as far as my experience goes (and my experience goes with apps such as K3b vs. Brasero, digiKam vs. <nothing-yet>, and so on). You’ll notice powerful, feature-rich apps in KDE that aren’t written by Novell’s Mono addicts if you’re not comfortable with Mono apps.

Listening to music started getting a lot more enjoyable with amaroK and even to this day Amarok is the only one. A screenshot of Amarok-2 preview. Look nowhere else for a music player.
