Better late than never, here are some screenshots of Kubuntu 11.10 in action.
This is Muon, the package manager that Kubuntu is introducing with this release.
Here’s what happened when I searched for “claws”. I couldn’t figure out how to sort those returns alphabetically. If you need to search for “mc”, you could be in for a slog.
But once Claws Mail is installed, it runs as well as it does on any distro. Here it is with top. (And here’s a raucous version of “Red Top” from a Barcelona band with a Russian-sounding name.)
The System Settings module. Even though it looks pretty much like it has throughout KDE 4.x’s fabled history, it works a lot better.
KDE’s most excellent CPU-monitoring widgets. Now, if I could figure out how to get these bad boys into the taskbar where they would do some good, I’d be cooking with gas.
The partition editor.
Here is KSnapshot taking a picture of itself.
