MozillaQuest: Tabbed-Browsing Coming to Konqueror

MozillaQuest is running a nice little story on the upcoming Tabs feature in Konqueror. "The K Desktop Environment (KDE) certainly has done lots to narrow the gap between the Linux desktop and the Microsoft Windows desktop.

LinuxPlanet: A Winding Path to KDE3

While we wait for KDE CVS and KDE mail to be resurrected, Hetz wrote in with a pointer to .dep's impressions of a pre-beta2 version of KDE3. It's actually quite positive (he finds KDE3 stable already), with screenshots, but also not without some criticism of KMail changes and a good point about the difficult-to-kill KOrganizer alarm daemon.

PC World New Zealand compares WinXP, MacOS X, and Linux/KDE2 and concludes that Linux/KDE2

ZDNet reviews KDE 2.2.1

ZDNet reviews KDE 2.2.1, saying it provides a seamless migration from Microsoft platforms for business users and a comprehensive set of productivity applications, internet software and user management programs.
