    While I agree that Korona exhibits some really poor font rendering
    probably due to antialiasing turned off, it's not as if you should
    be particularly proud with yours, also. FYI, this is how a decent
    font rendering should look (and yes, it's your favourite KDE):

      Kubuntu is the worst distro available (buggy KDE implementation, buggy Ubuntu packages fanning the fire). I'm not surprised it crashed. Try any other distro with KDE (Debian, Fedora, OpenSuSE) and you should be pleasantly surprised.
      Change the theme if you don't want it to "look like Vista" (which as of 4.3 it doesn't).

      KDE4 has matured VERY fast for it's age because of the excellent community around it - 4.2 was the first usable release and 4.3 is the polished version of 4.2 with a few extras thrown in. I think the rest of the features should be ported from KDE 3.5 by about ~KDE4.6.

      It seems the "4.0 not for daily use!" message still hasn't reached some ears.

      IMO - KDE 4's newest release beats the hell out of any desktop environment available including Vista, Win 7 and Mac OSX.

        For you yes it probably does everything you need but everyone has different uses. For example I couldn't in good conscience recommend really any desktop in linux to a person who needs accessibility tools. OS X pretty much skins everything else out there "out of the box" for the visually impaired for one such example.

          Are you sure? There is lots of quality accessibility tools for Gnome (not so sure about KDE, but maybe cross compatible) last time I heard this topic discussed (on Linux Outlaws, who also assumed that Linux lacked these tools - which according to multiple replies it does not).

            I think this is something that KDE does lack, it seems like I heard of an effort a while ago to support the same API Gnome was using inside QT, but I don't know what the status of that is. Hopefully the Gnome tools will work with KDE soon.

              Meh, it's not as if you had to do twice the effort. Who are you to complain if other people don't all want to do what you want when you don't pay them?

                Very sure, have you ever tried to support a legally blind person with the only other person being completely blind, from installation and troubleshooting to full usage? Voice Over as well as it's speech recognition far exceed any other linux desktop accessibility tools. Not to mention it handles pretty much every braille display known to man. It goes far beyond the basic zoom features found in gnome (not to mention the aweful sounding espeak that gnome-speech uses).

                    Solaris is used in File Storage (because of ZFS), data processing (because it is strong in this area and has Ztrace for finding bugs and bottle-necks) and is also very secure. It is also the best OS for Sun hardware.

                      This is how it SHOULD look like:

                      Some people call KDE4 "Open Source Vista"
                      font rendering is nothing KDE can do about. That is done by xorg an fontconfig and other stuff. But thanks for reminding everyone that you don't know anything you talk about.If fonts look ugly complain to Sun. Or even better - complain to american corrupt politicians who made it possible to patent software.

                      for the 'kubuntu live cd' guy: complain to canonical. Kubuntu sucks. Everybody knows that. So what? Don't use kubuntu. Use a distribution where KDE is not tortured with bad patches.

                      Also, Vista? Are you kidding me? If you had said 'I prefer gnome, because it looks almost like Windows ME' well, that would have been a lot more believable.

                          @smitty3268 Are you sure about that i can crash it in 5 minutes if i want.
                          OK Kubuntu is build around 4.2 so it's 4.3 very better.

                            Kubuntu, you mean? Or KDE? Cause they're different.

                            Edit: Yes, I mean 4.3 is solid. 4.2 was still a little shaky in comparison.

                                Why not, openSUSE's 11.1 KDE was fine @ 4.1, further improved by updating to 4.2 and with 4.3 is solid. You do not need a updated distro to test the later versions of KDE. You simply have to install the latest packages from each distro.
