KDE Software Compilation 4.6.0 Released

faster Loved KDE, but had to leave (202 comments)

I'll check this out, but I'm betting the bloat is still there. Nepomuk and its family are probably still required. I don't want or need it but it insists on running a MySQL server and piles of other daemons.

I used KDE from about 2000 to the end of 2010, then tried Awesome (too minimal for me, but interesting and FAST) and LXDE (no sessions?) before settling on Gnome. I don't love Gnome (and probably never will), but it works and I have reasonably fine-grained control over its bloatedness.

Practical Software Testing Resources?

faster First, understand testing (42 comments)

Read "The Art of Software Testing" by Glenford Myers. Even if you only get a few chapters in, you'll get a lot of ideas that will improve your testing. "Testing Computer Software" by Cem Kaner is another good one.
