Creating a list of resources for KDE (currently mixing user, programmer, whatever).

See AboutThesePages.




See ResourceRecommendations.


Recommended for Specific Needs

  • Kernel Cousin KDE Archives -- these Kernel Cousin thingies are sort of neat -- one or more people read a mail list (or newsgroup??) and summarize the various threads to greater or lesser extents. They are currently looking for an editor. (Since I don't (haven't) read this maillist, I don't think I could handle this for KDE, but maybe someday would be willing to do it for a mail list I do read (but, WikiLearn is at least potentially an alternative to that, so maybe I'll want to concentrate on developing WikiLearn, including in that direction).
  • semi-humor (semi-serious?) KDE vs. GNOME developers; Copyright 2002; Derek Glidden -- Derek's vision of KDE vs. GNOME developers (which rings somewhat likely to me)

  • Linux Magazine: KDE:The Korporate Desktop Environment; November 2002 -- article looks good for a number of reasons including upgrading (or installing?) kde 3.x by compiling, and running kde with all preference files on a central server for ease in administering large numbers of desktops (read the first few pages)

Recommended by Others

  • Bringing KDE Closer to Joe User's Desktop; Eugenia Loli-Queru; 2002-07-11 19:00:32 -- I thought I had read this, but I just skimmed the first page and I don't think I did. It focuses on the UI (User Interface) and I'm not sure I agree with much of what it says. There was some indication that the KDE developer's were carefully discussing her suggestions, but I may have that mixed up with another article. Here's an example:

As for the "Configure Desktop..." itself, it should have been called "Desktop Properties" or "Desktop Settings". "Configure" is a verb. Configure implies that the user knows how to "configure" something. Believe me, for a Unix newcomer, "configure" is a dreadful verb. It is a scary command. It might sound funny to you, but never underestimate the psychology of the user. UI is all about psychology. It is all about shapes, colors, pictures, words... Picking the right elements each time is the right way of creating a comfortable desktop environment.

From the dot:

The developers have started a discussion [http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-core-devel&m=102642696926288&w=2] based on this article.
