The KDE Community today announces the immediate availability of "Caizen", (a.k.a KDE 4.3), bringing many improvements to the user experience and development platform. KDE 4.3 continues to refine the unique features brought in previous releases while bringing new innovations. With the 4.2 release aimed at the majority of end users, KDE 4.3 offers a more stable and complete product for the home and small office.

The KDE community has fixed over 10,000 bugs and implemented almost 2,000 feature requests in the last 6 months. Close to 63,000 changes were checked in by a little under 700 contributors.

It's a Linux desktop environment... K Desktop Environment. It's pretty much another GUI. But for Linux, it also determines what programs can be run natively without having to install extra libraries.

Desktop Environment
What Is KDE?

Do not be mislead... You can run and install kde "applications" not the gui.... Would be nice if they added the gui to this.

I'm talking about the Linux KDE not the Windows KDE. To install KDE applications, there are certain libraries that must be installed beforehand.
Never mind. Gregux confuses me. :blink:

Just tried this out for Windows XP and it's pretty good but it's kinda slow and when I ran the audio player, it used over 110k ram which is pretty ridiculous. Also there's like 4 extra services just to run KDE, and when you only have 512 ram, you need everything you can get.

Windows users will have to wait for a few more days for the final version.
