Scripting Kate

,----[ Quote ]
| In my last blog I explained Kate's
| scripting features in KDE 4.4. To better
| understand how scripting can be used let's
| look at some use cases.
|
|
| * join lines: This feature request
| wants the action "join lines" to not
| join different paragraphs, i.e. not
| remove empty lines. We have not
| implemented this wish, as there are
| probably users who prefer the current
| behaviour. This request can be fixed by
| writing a small script that joins the
| lines according to the user's wishes.

5 System Administration Tools for KDE

,----[ Quote ]
| Keeping any computer system running can be
| some work. It would be nice if we never had
| to do any type of maintenance or
| troubleshooting, but no operating system
| has reached that point. Many desktop Linux
| users have server administration experience
| and are quite comfortable dropping to the
| command line and tinkering with their
| system. Not only do they know how to do
| this, it is the method that makes them
| comfortable.

KDE makes me feel so platt

,----[ Quote ]
| The teams have to translate at present
| 163711 strings. Lox Saxon (5) is at 92%,
| German (11) at 87%. There is a reason why
| Lower Saxony won make KDE4 in Low Saxon
| its National Desktop Environment for the
| public sector. Hardly anyone speaks it in
| the capital Hanover where according to
| certain legends the reference dialect of
| German (Standard German) is spoken, a city
| which ironically had been under English
| rule for quite some time.

KDE4 Devel Live-CD Review: Work in Progress

,----[ Quote ]
| The LiveCD edition of KDE4 clearly shows that a significant amount
| of work has been dedicated to the project already. There is however
| a lot to be finished before the new version of KDE will shine. I
| think that the stability and quality of the SVN version is not a
| big deal -- all development code is unstable and lacks features.
| KDE4 promises to be a modern and functional environment with a
| huge collection of remarkable apps, well integrated with each
| other, starting with a the office suite, though file management,
| multimedia and even programmer tools. Great achievements,
| however, require time.
