Looks good. If we had the resources, it would be a good way to go for M12.

It was posted by Aaron Seigo on Google +. While I said it was for new users, I learned some things as well. KDE 4.8 has a lot of this implemented. So M12 should have most of it.

Well, it's gone now. I find some things have changed from KDE 3 to KDE 4. For example, a viewport cannot be given a distinct color for its title bar. And the Plasma GUI component is just bizarre, IMHO. No doubt I will run into some other vexing KDE 4 quirks in the future.

Blip no longer carries the video in the link. Maybe you can find it somewhere else?

A web search finds it in less time than it takes to complain that the link of over a year ago is mysteriously gone:

Except that is not the link Rich refereed to, plus it is not KDE 4.8, it is a later version which is different in a lot of ways to Debian KDE 4.8.
A look quick at Dolphin should tell you that. if you know anything about KDE.
