Plasma: Speak up
July 14, 2008
I hadn’t been to kde-look.org in a little while, so I browsed the site today. The “Plasma Themes” section is growing pretty quickly. Not sure if this is due to the recent Plasma theme contest, but there are already some themes that look pretty sharp. Hopefully people can put in some more time to get their respective themes in place for the upcoming 4.1 release. Like plug-in developers, it’s always appreciated when theme creators clearly note compatibility and completeness and refresh with releases.
Speaking of 4.1, since I don’t really have the time to deal with SVN updates, I’m already looking forward to LiveCDs based on 4.1 RC 1 (due out soon). We’re all pretty spoiled with how fast the turnaround times are on these updates. I’m guessing Plasma will take another little leap forward from the Beta LiveCD I tried just a week or two ago.
So, although a vocal minority may have enjoyed bagging Plasma for the past couple of months, I have a sneaking suspicion that plenty of people like myself are happy with the progress and direction. And more people need to speak up and support this progress.
To show my adoration for the Plasma team, I’ve whipped up a new Be Free image. The original 2400X2400 can be found with the other images here. Don’t be shy to profess your love for Plasma and my marketing talents. We may be like the hot cheerleaders, but we’re more approachable than you think. Just don’t take us to Applebee’s on the first date, or we’re going right back to Thad the star quarterback.
