Netbook: what are you?
Some time ago Michael Dell said that netbooks delivers a really poor user experience. Now it's pretty easy to infer that this is because netbooks sales are starting to erode the higher margins desktop and notebook markets, putting the manifacturers in a really difficult situation: one of the most successful type of device of all timesis killing the most expensive ones.
A new quite interesting chapter of my life is started since quite some time, I didn't want to say too much about it until everything was settled down and up to speed. But now i guess the time has come, let me introduce my new employer, a pretty familiar and constant presence in the KDE development:
Today I've moved the site hosting to a new provider. It should be way better than the old uber-cheap one. Transition gone pretty well, but the site has been kinda broken for some hours, now all should be back normal again.
I hope to not have lost comments during the DNS transition time.
Trying the netbook project made easy
Since two days there is a new module in systemsettings: workspace under the Desktop category.
Here is possible to switch between the Plasma desktop shell and the netbook shell. the switch will be done on the fly (no need to restart KDE) and it will be remembered the next KDE start.
