Is KDE stable enough now to work with all kinds of Desktop complexities?

Reddit - Mon, 2016-10-10 04:57

I've never used KDE for any considerable amount of time and each time I tried it, there were some desktop issues or other. Most notably, akonadi and strigi used to cause memory issues and always had to be disabled in order to work smoothly (don't remember what they used to do).

How is the DE presently. I presently use Ubuntu and the usual apps I use are LibreOffice, firefox, gimp, inkscape, blender, dia, netbeans and android studio. Can someone confirm whether all these apps work as efficiently on a KDE as they do in Ubuntu (Unity)?

  • Open Source Forking Demystified: Threats and Benefits

    Two researchers, Gregorio Robles and Jesus M. Gonzalez-Barahona, from Universidad Rey Juan Carlos in Spain, had embarked on a study of forks.

Key questions answered were—how many forks were in actual existence, was forking frequency increasing and understanding the root-causes for forking.

RethinkDB Woes

  • RethinkDB database shuts down as its business falters
  • Company Behind RethinkDB Is Shutting Down, Database to Remain Open Source
  • BigchainDB Moves On From End Of RethinkDB
  • RethinkDB is shutting down

    I just installed RethinkDB 2.3.5 on a new laptop and took a few minutes to slow down and play with the product. I’m very proud of what we built alongside our community – RethinkDB’s technology more often feels like magic, and I hope it will continue to play an important role in advancing the state of the art in database technology.

    We’re working with members of our community to develop a continuity plan for RethinkDB and Horizon. Both projects will continue to be available, distributed under open source licenses. We hope to continue our open development process with a larger community of contributors.

    We’d like your help to ensure RethinkDB’s future as an open-source project! We don’t have all of the details figured out, but we wanted to be as open as possible during this process. If you’re interested in contributing, please join us in the #open-rethinkdb channel of our public Slack group. You can expect to see development slow down in the meantime, but everything will continue to be available on rethinkdb.com and horizon.io. We will post updates on our blog and Twitter as we continue working things out.
