At times I’ve felt like KDE 4 is a little bit on the sluggish side on my desktop PCs. On a netbook’s Atom processor? I wouldn’t even have considered switching from Gnome if I hadn’t seen this video on YouTube.
We’ve known the Plasma interface was coming for quite some time, and it finally made its debut in Kubuntu 9.10. After watching the 2-minute demo on a real, live netbook (the Asus Eee 1005Ha) I can’t wait to give Kubuntu another shot. The transition effects and animations run very smoothly, and the interface looks right at home on the 1005Ha’s 1024×600 pixel display.
Check the video after the break!
If you’re using (or have tried) Kubuntu 9.10’s Plasma interface on your netbook, share your experience in the comments!
