KDE SC 4.4 demo
KDE has just released the shinyest most complete version of its desktop yet. KDE Software Collection 4.4 uses the leading KDE Platform provided by KDE 4 to provide applications that cover the needs from netbooks to large desktop rollouts. Jos takes us through the new features in its applications and the progress made by KDE 4 in the last year.
Jos is a member of the KDE promo team. He lives in the Netherlands. Anyone accepting a lift home in his car from FOSDEM does so at their own risk.
PIMp My Desktop

KDevelop is the IDE from KDE. It can be used for many programming languages and environements. KDevelop 4 rewrites much of the application and is about to be released. Aleix will take a look at the features and give us tips on getting the most out of your coding time.
