Not sure. KDE4 will probably not be stable enough, it will be necessary to await 4.1 or 4.2 undoubtedly. :roll:
I believe besides that many distribs will not include it immediately…
well my HD won't be stable enough anytime soon...err i won't be getting a new one for a bit. :p probably not until after the holidays.

F-spot is a GTK2 app and may get included into Daryna

Please no! No Mono applications... If you want a Gnome application rather then include Gthumb.

F-spot is LESS capable than Gthumb. The interface is easier to use but if you try to go deeper with Gthumb you'll clearly understand how f-spot is useless.
Gthumb is the only gnome app i know that can print multiple photos on the same page ! something Windows XP had built-in in 2001.
So, we can't replace gthumb with f-spot. (and you can tag with gthumb too). :)

No offense taken :)

How experienced am I? Well enough to have bad taste in my kickers :lol: :wink:

I use kubuntu gutsy as my main and am playing with cassandra kde community, and mepis 7.0 beta.
I have windows as a vmware "guest" running on wll sytsems as I need adobe / macromedia stuff for work.

I am far away from an expert but am learning and enjoying it :D

@linuxviolin: I wholeheartedly agree

Hehe... I never dared bringing that up ! Well, it's the first thing I do usually remove. but I am a bit biased, as I help creating KBFX. We have now new features - but the release isn't out yet :-(

I will anounce when it's here.

Test it, you might like it.

As for removing, I think kbfx is better (but I AM BIASED), but tastymenu is better than kmenu.

I have to voice my opinion and say that I prefer the TastyMenu. I also prefer the KBFX menu, or the Kickoff. In fact, I prefer ANYTHING THAT ISN'T THE ORIGINAL KDE MENU. It just reminds me too much of Windows 98 and hasn't evolved much beyond that since.

With all three of the other menus, you can customise nicely as well. I like this.

@ Izo

Kickoff? With all these click click click to open something? :roll:
What time lost all these clicks! :lol:

Maybe the original KDE menu reminds Windows 98 but it is simple, light etc I like it.:wink:

And even in Windows XP I replaced the default theme (horrible) by the traditional theme...:D

I prefer Kickoff together with KBFX > Tasty > KDE. I sort the application how I like them, so Kickoff is very intuitive and fast to use. No clicks needed.
KBFX is great because you can configure it so mch, but always when I try to configure it it gets messed so I better use the defalt one which is very good (KORE for KBFX).
TastyMenu looks bad in my opinion, but it has a good overview.
KDE is really bad, it's jst like Wndows-Menu and I never liked them.

No clicks? ah? I no longer uses kickoff for some time, even in my KDE distro in dual-boot with Mint, but I remember that it was necessary to click on the tabs at the bottom and also to open submenus etc :wink: click click click :lol:

But we need for all tastes is not it? :D

P.S.= I don't like KBFX either

I really really love the tasty menu of mint, I hope it will never change. And I hate Dolphin!!! Konqueror is the best navigator, it has also integrated kdesvn that I use here at work, if someone wants a simplier navigator just use Gnome that has Nautilus. Indeed I use mint Gnome at home and mint KDE on the work laptop because KDE is more professional.

bah... I also agree that tasty is a tad too large... but I deffinitely prefer it over the default crap.. ewwww :)

I wanted to bring up the vixta distro... it's a fedora release touched up to seem more like vista... I really like the design, it's quite elegant and pretty.. take a look guys:

Windows is extremely fast after a fresh install. If you want to make it stay that way: - don't use it.

Daryna KDE CE will be out soon.

I have been looking at KDE4 beta3 (as a second DE) but I have not got it to work yet.
so KDE4 will be left off if I can not get it to work.

:D

Don't seek! KDE4 will most likely good enough, stable... probably only from 4.1 or 4.2 So don't seek to include it in Daryna KDE immediately please :D

well I just need to do a bit more testing then I will upload.

I am just having a bit of trouble with the installer at them moment, but this may just be the iso since it is not a consistent error.

I am not putting KDE4 on the iso.

:D
