    Phoronix: KDE SC 4.4.2 Released w/ Fixes

    The software compilation of KDE 4.4 was released in early February and it will be the latest and greatest version of the KDE Desktop until KDE 4.5 is released in about four more months. While KDE SC 4.4 brought a lot to the table, there's still some bugs and other items continued to be squashed on a monthly basis via new point releases. The second point release for KDE SC 4.4 that brings maintenance updates is now available...

    I just upgraded my production Mandriva Linux computer following these instructions and I am loving it. One little thing I have noticed that is fixed in this release is that the frame around Luna/Moon widget is gone. Looks much nicer now with the space wallpaper I am using.

    KDE is technically a stronger desktop IMO.

    So let the KDE desktop continue marching on
    I agree wholeheartedly.

    My only system suffering from that is my 64-bit virtual machine, which is still unfixed as of 4.4.2.

    Lol, use Konqueror, google your house with google maps, drag&drop it on your desktop widget, fullscreen it and it keeps your house satalite image up to date with the image.

    However, it's not realy a static webpage, so I don't know if it'll work

    Btw. this video is a bit choppy, but it doesn't matter Marble as a desktop works great for me with os radeon driver.

    Right-click on the desktop, select "Desktop Activity Settings", and then choose "Globe" in the "Type" drop-down list. Then you get this:

    IIRC, you're using Gentoo? In that case, you need to have the "plasma" USE flag enabled for kde-base/marble in order to get that option in the desktop settings.
