Hey guys I have been following Nate Graham and his “Usability and Productivity” updates for KDE: https://pointieststick.wordpress.com/ and thought it tied in well with Alan’s recent KDE contribution notes.
Nate is doing a great job engaging the community and consolidating weekly updates on bugfixes and usability updates, and gives helpful pointers on how to get involved (check some of the back weeks for more on that). I haven’t spent too much time with KDE in the past but along with others am happy to see the performance gains and some rough edges getting smoothed out to provide a really polished desktop.
