I’m a little late in this post but KDE 3.1 was released on Tuesday. I have yet to install (I think I’ll wait for an rpm) so I can’t vouch for it but I hear it has a whole bag of sexy new features.
Judging from the screenshots, it looks a little ‘cute-ish’ (in a fluffy, XP way). Strange? Yes.
In other desktop news: the latest Gnome 2.2 Release Candidate came out today. I’m not a fan of Gnome, but I’ll be downloading 2.2 to test it out, anyway.

If Linux and Windows mated, this would be their baby. I’m serious. Check out the screenshots.
