This release marks substantial improvements in the KDE PIM stack, giving much better performance and many new features. Kate added new features including initial Vim-macro support, and games and educational applications bring a variety of new features. The announcement for the KDE Applications 4.12 has more information. This release of KDE Platform 4.12 only includes bugfixes and minor optimizations and features. About 20 bugfixes as well as several optimizations have been made to various subsystems. A technology preview of the Next Generation KDE Platform, named KDE Frameworks 5, is coming this month."

    Different strokes....
    I think KDE has a brilliant UI that supports my workflow wonderfully. I find it much better than Mac OSX and MS Windows in almost every aspect. Haven't used Gnome since the early 2.0 days, but I never liked how it worked or how it looked, and I found KDE programs superior for my use: K3b, Krusader, Kmail, Amarok, Kontakt, Digikam, Gwenview, KTorrent, Konsole are IMHO superior what else I have seen on Linux.

    Never had KDE Plasma crash on me, even with extreme loads.

    I wonder if I could use the KDE on Windows effort on those asking for help with Windows 8 (right now i have just slapped classic shell on there). My "secret" hope would be that when they are comforable enough with KDE I could convert them to a proper OS (I usually give OpenSuse KDE to novice users but use Arch myself). The case for an alternative user-installed desktop environment has never been greater on Windows, so definitely an opportunity.
