It's actually not preloading either, more like not-unloading -- i.e. a few instance of Konqueror can be told to hang around on exit, and to popup their windows when a user wants a new instance, instead of starting an entirely new copy.

I've noticed that the unofficial binaries are available. Did anyone upgrade to 3.1.2 ? Problems ? KDE apps that do not run anymore after the upgrade ?

Thank you for your answers,


I happened to see some screenshots of the new KDE destop in a magazine and was very impressed. I had a spare computer sitting around and thought what the hell, I'll install linux on it so I can try and get this KDE desktop thing and see how it really is. After doing some googling I decided I wanted to try debian (because of the apt-get thing) and a couple of frustrating hours later I finally was able to download and install KDE.

I got to say...I was blown away, it was even better than the screenshots I seen. I suppose I'm just another sheltered windows user (or was anyways!) that was unaware of the alternatives out there. I mean I had heard of linux before but never imagined that it could be as good a desktop solution as it is...but with kde I think it's better than my XP desktop now.

I am very eager to make the transition from windows to linux and I am preaching it to my friends and family now. Now that my eyes are open to the fact that there are alternatives and IMHO they are superior alternatives as well, I want to thank KDE and all the hard working people that make it happen. KDE rocks :-)
