For a long time I was a KDE user however since using ubuntu I have grown used to using the gnome desktop. I was always still a fan of KDE but not a fan of the ubuntu treatment of it. With the announcement of the KDE rewrite I was very excited and keen to give it a go. I have tried KDE 4.0 and 4.1 and found it too buggy/hard to use daily. I have decided to give KDE a go again in Kubuntu 9.04.
First impressions are that it looks very slick and feels fast. So far I have had two apps crash but nothing critical. There is enough different from KDE 3.5 and Gnome that it feels like learning a new desktop manager.
I will continue to play with it.
